The Red Portal: Fighting Climate Change

klimawandel-bekaempfen.de - In the red portal, you will find information on topics such as climate change and other environmental issues.

There is no longer any denying that climate change exists. If we fail to stop it, storms, floods, droughts, melting glaciers, and natural catastrophes will follow as a result. Efforts of the United Nations to fight poverty worldwide will show little effectiveness and sadly, the countries that will be hit hardest by climate change are the ones that contribute the least to it. Great importance is placed upon this issue at the UNA-Germany. Fighting climate change is not just a question of political decision-making; it is also a question of our daily actions. We all must stand for this global responsibility and work to strengthen the United Nations.

Klimawandel-bekaempfen.de offers further information about current issues regarding the environment. Learn more at our German-language website! Read more...

The Green Portal: Ensuring Peace

frieden-sichern.de - The green portal delivers information on topics such as peacekeeping as well as recent developments in international conflicts, disarmament and counter-terrorism.

Safeguarding world peace and international security is outlined as the United Nations’ central goal in Article 1 in the UN Charter. Today, global peacebuilding is a complex challenge. Many of the focus points of peacebuilding involve settling conflict through military and civilian activities, disarmament and combating terrorism. A significant concept in peacebuilding is Human Security. This means more than just an absence of weapons and war. Human Security is comprehensive security, which means protection from poverty, war and humiliation, which means better life chances and the observance of human rights. The concept also characterizes the commitment the United Nations has to peacekeeping around the world.
