Nearly twenty years ago, the world united to condemn and take action against the use of children in armed conflict.

Since that time, thousands of children have been released as a result of action plans mandated by the UN Security Council aimed at ending and preventing the recruitment and use of children in conflict.

The "Children, Not Soldiers" campaign launched in March 2014, seeks to galvanize support to end and prevent the recruitment and use of children by national security forces by 2016.

Thanks for your support over the past year!

Data helps the international community measure the progress of development. How many children attend school; who has access to healthcare and how many people are employed?

On 3-6 March, over 300 senior statisticians from all corners of the world are gathering for the 46th session of the Statistical Commission to ensure that we have reliable data for development. The ultimate goal - to enable people to live better lives.

I think the smartest thing the USA could do is pull out of the United Nations. We all know, if we wish to admit it or not, that the only reason they even allow us there is for our money and we really don't have any of that anyway. If we feel we MUST remain in it, we should AT LEAST move it out of our country. I know this is my personal opinion, but I also know there are a lot of other people out there that agree with it and might just be too afraid to put it out there.

Today there are 805 million undernourished people in the world. That means one in nine people do not get enough food to be healthy and lead an active life.

Swedish professional footballer Zlatan Ibrahimovic had 50 of the names of these 805 million people tattooed underneath his sweater for a game on 14 February. Names of people he’d never met, but still wanted to keep close.

805 million people are suffering from hunger today. Make sure the world knows.

We should all treat others as we want to be treated, that's a fact, but the laws are now causing discrimination.

The costs of disasters worldwide has reached an average of $250 billion to $300 billion every year, according to a new UNISDR report launched at UN Headquarters on Wednesday ahead of this month's World Conference on Disaster Risk Reduction in Japan.

“We are playing with fire. There is a very real possibility that disaster risk, fueled by climate change, will reach a tipping point beyond which the effort and resources necessary to reduce it will exceed the capacity of future generations," said Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon.

See all details here: http://j.mp/1zlFWX2
The Global Assessment Report GAR is a major initiative of the ISDR that contributes to the achievement of the Hyogo Framework for Action (HFA) through monitoring risk patterns and trends and progress in disaster risk reduction while providing strategic policy guidance to countries and the international community.

“For us, international humanitarian law and international human rights law cannot be trifled with or circumvented, but must be fully observed,” High Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein told the United Nations Human Rights Council on Monday, saying how even though the UN Charter was established 70 years ago, with alarming regularity, human rights are disregarded, and violated, sometimes to a shocking degree.

+Glen Cauthon Or perhaps it says "the way some nations allow their definition of equal to cause violations of human rights is unacceptable"? Read the constitution, don't leave out or ignore the preamble come back when you get it.

In the lead up to World Wildlife Day, people around the world have been showing their support for ‪#‎SeriousAboutWildlifeCrime‬ campaign. Now, even our non-human friends – those most affected by organized wildlife crime – are joining in!

The industrial scale of wildlife crime is seriously impacting many of the world’s forests and wild animals, while the criminal networks involved are generating massive illicit profits.

Post a photo using #SeriousAboutWildlifeCrime to tell the world that it’s time to take a stand against organized wildlife crime before it’s too late.
