Dear Friends,

October 24 is celebrated every year worldwide by the United Nations and its partners as the ‘UN Day’. On this day, we highlight our joint work towards the improvement of people’s lives. The specific achievements we seek are defined in the mandate of the United Nations itself, and through the goals that the Governments of the world have agreed to work towards. The Millennium Development Goals (MDG’s) best exemplify our common objectives: concrete targets to improve people’s lives in a clear timeline. Just as important is HOW we work: partnerships both global and local are the key to effective achievement of sustainable results.

The Secretary-General - Message on United Nations Day 24 October 2008

On this 63rd anniversary of our Organization, I join you in celebrating UN Day.

This is a crucial year in the life of our United Nations. We have just passed the midpoint in the struggle to reach the Millennium Development Goals -- our common vision for building a better world in the 21st century. We can see more clearly than ever that the threats of the 21st century spare no one.  Climate change, the spread of disease and deadly weapons, and the scourge of terrorism all cross borders.  If we want to advance the global common good, we must secure global public goods.

Message of Thoraya Ahmed Obaid Executive Director of UNFPA, the United Nations Population Fund on the International Day of Older Persons 1 October 2008

We pay tribute to older persons and the wisdom that comes with a lifetime of experience. And we acknowledge the unprecedented demographic transition that is underway in our world, with the number of persons aged 60 and older rising rapidly.

The women's organizations and other civil society organizations, which joined them, are deeply convinced that aid can only be effective if it aims at improvement of the situation of vulnerable men and women, if it brings sustainable positive changes to their lives, protection of their human rights and contributes to women's empowerment. "The Gender Issues in Implementation of the Paris Declaration in the Kyrgyz Republic" mapping study results conducted by the pilot EC-UN Partnership on Gender Equality for Development and Peace project implemented in the 12 countries of the world, including Kyrgyzstan, has proved this point.
