Remarks to the Fifth Committee of the General Assembly on the Proposed Programme Budget for 2020

I welcome this opportunity to introduce the proposed programme budget for 2020.

You are all aware of the diverse and enormous challenges we face at this time, from climate change to multiplying conflicts, from increasing inequality to rising intolerance. People’s expectations of our Organization are profound.
