‘Critical moment’ for sustainable development: UN chief


Uneven growth, rising debt levels, possible upticks in financial volatility, and heightened global trade tensions are hampering progress on reaching the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), UN chief Antnio Guterres told the Forum on Financing for Development, during what he called a critical moment to accelerate action for sustainable development.
Ministers, senior UN officials, high-level finance officials, civil society, business representatives and local authorities, are meeting at UN Headquarters for the four-day FfD Forum, as it is known for short.
Mr Guterres said climate change, greenhouse gas emissions and technologies disrupting labour markets, were a major challenge, saying We are here today as part of an effort to coordinate an urgent global response to reverse these trends.
