Secretary-General's video message to the Aswan Forum for Sustainable Peace and Development
As you gather for this forum, the people of Africa are facing unprecedented and multidimensional crises.
An economic crisis sparked by COVID-19 and deepened by the skyrocketing price of food, fuel and fertilizers resulting from Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
A crisis of unequal access to vaccines to protect people from the virus.
A financial crisis, with countries unable to access debt relief or finances to recover.
A crisis of instability, terrorism and conflict.
And — as this year’s theme reminds us — a climate crisis.
