VNR: The EU and the UN - the natural partnership

68 views

Five years ago, the 191 members of the United Nations made 8 promises to improve the quality of life of hundreds of millions of people across the world by the year 2015. These Millennium Development Goals are attempting to eliminate hunger, alleviate poverty and address other issues like education, the environment and security. It's now time to review progress on this United Nations project. From the 14th to the 16th of September, The UN Summit in September in New York will bring together Heads of State and Governments to review progress made since the adoption of the Millennium Declaration in 2000. This Declaration represents an ambitious set of values, principles and objectives for the global challenges of the twenty-first century, as well as deadlines for collective action. To coincide with this event, Esras Films have produced a free to air video news release looking at the African country of Uganda, and examining the interaction and co-operation between the EU and the UN which has taken place at all levels. The European Union is the largest donor to the UN and is also a strong supporter of its overall approach. In an exclusive and frank interview for this report, Member of the EC in charge of External Relations and European Neighbourhood Policy Ferrero-Waldner, outlines how the EU sees itself as a partner of the UN in achieving the MDGs and global security, and remains constant in its commitment to the multilateral instrument of the UN. Much speculation on the future of the United Nations is concerned with reform of the institution. This report however, has the work of the UN on its agenda and looks at the pursuit of progress on the Millennium Development Goals in Uganda.
