Ban Ki-moon in Zürich
United Nations The UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has left no doubts in his speech at the annual conference of the Swiss Development Cooperation, that it represents a major challenge to organize the implementation of the adopted sustainability goals (SDGs) in September 2015.
He admonished the affluent countries of their responsibility especially with regard to the financing of the 17 objectives, and their promise to invest annually at least 0.7% of gross domestic product in development cooperation. Unacceptable he called financing of humanitarian aid at the expense of the budget for development cooperation. (Photo © flickr)
