 UN supporting ‘trapped’ domestic violence victims during COVID-19 pandemic
The United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women (UN Women) says that domestic violence was already one of the greatest human rights violations. Some 243 million women and girls (aged 15-49) have been subjected to sexual or physical violence by an intimate partner in the last 12 months, as the COVID-19 pandemic continues, this number is likely to grow.

 What COVID-19 Can Teach Us About Sustainability
Sustainability is the concept of maintaining equitable conditions across not only socioeconomic and geographic barriers, but also across generations and through time. Sustainability seeks to demonstrate that there is a way for society to progress and prosper in harmony with the planet. It’s about maintaining a healthy balance between people and the environment.

 UN Secretary-General António Guterres :"Our response to COVID-19 must respect the rights and dignity of older people"
The COVID-19 pandemic is causing untold fear and suffering for older people across the world.The fatality rate for older people is higher overall, and for those over 80, it is five times the global average.

 UN mobilizes global cooperation in science-based COVID-19 responses
The United Nations is mobilizing international cooperation to harness the power of science to tackle the coronavirus pandemic, while also working with partners to explore innovative crisis responses tools. The COVID-19 pandemic raises our awareness of the importance of science, both in research and international cooperation – UNESCO Director-General Audrey Azoulay

  ANTÓNIO GUTERRES: "Let us renew our faith in one another"
Today, I want to make a special appeal to religious leaders of all faiths to join forces to work for peace around the world and focus on our common battle to defeat COVID19. I do so at a special time on the spiritual calendar. For Christians, it is the celebration of Easter. Jews are marking Passover. And soon, Muslims will begin the holy month of Ramadan. I extend my warmest wishes to all those observing these important moments.

 The power of the Ten Principles of the UN Global Compact to guide business leaders in responding to the crisis
As the world’s largest corporate sustainability initiative, the United Nations Global Compact is calling on business leaders everywhere to unite to support workers, communities and companies affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. A coordinated international plan involving the business sector will be critical in efforts to support people and companies affected, limit further disruption to the economy and facilitate business continuity for a swift recovery.
