“That’s a Movement”: Highlights from the 68th United Nations General Assembly

 

In this post on the International Food Information Council (IFIC) Foundation blog, Kimberly Reed, Executive Director, writes about the 68th United Nations General Assembly (UNGA), which took place in September. The event focused on “Post-2015 Development Agenda: Setting the Stage,” and UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon stressed the importance of business, civil society, and philanthropic community collaboration.

Reed writes: “The U.S. Government and the CARICOM Community, with the NCD Alliance and the NCD Roundtable (of which the IFIC Foundation is a member), co-hosted: Healthy Planet, Healthy People: Building Synergies for Sustainable Development. Dr. Richard Horton, Editor of The Lancet, moderated a lively panel discussion on the lessons learnt from the MDG era for health, importance of including NCDs as a central part of the post-2015 framework, and challenges of integrating health across all dimensions of sustainable development.”
