That is why it is the focus of this year’s International Day of Peace. And it’s why I am convening a Climate Action Summit."

In 2015, the member countries of the United Nations adopted the '17 Sustainable Development Goals' as they understood that global peace remains unattainable untill economic and social development is achieved for all people across the world and their rights are protected.
