Guterres: Failure to prevent conflict is world’s greatest shortfall

June 28, 2017

9th January 2017: The international community's failure to prevent conflicts and promote security is its greatest failing to date, writes United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres. To achieve its full potential, the UN must strengthen institutions and help build more resilient societies to prevent countries from destabilizing and resorting to violent conflicts, he writes. He calls for the protection and empowerment of women and girls which he describes as one of the most important steps in sustainable development. See: Newsweek: 9th January 2017
