On the 20th anniversary of the UN Security Council Resolution 1325 on Women, Peace and Security, we celebrate a turning point in the way the international community has approached peace and security and, more specifically, the impact of conflict on women and girls. Their unique experiences are crucial in peace-building and peacekeeping processes. There is no real peace and security without them.
On 24 October, the European Union turns blue to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the United Nations. We celebrate a moment that turned the course of history: when global powers, in 1945, decided to work together for peace.
Today the European Union, along with the United States, the United Kingdom and the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees co-hosted the International Donors' Conference in solidarity with Rohingya refugees and countries in the region.
Food is the essence of life and yet it is something that we may take for granted. The COVID-19 global health crisis has made us rethink the things we truly cherish and our most basic needs. One of these is food. Preserving access to safe and nutritious food is an essential part of the response to the COVID-19 pandemic, especially for poor and vulnerable communities, hit hardest by the pandemic. The EU is committed to tackle global hunger and contribute to the accomplishment of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goal 2: ZERO HUNGER
