IFAD at the General Assembly of the United Nations
17 - 30 September 2019
The 74th session opens on 17 September 2019, and is presided by H.E. Mr. Tijjani Muhammad-Bande.
The General Assembly is one of the six main organs of the United Nations, the only one in which all Member States have equal representation: one nation, one vote. All 193 Member States of the United Nations are represented in this unique forum to discuss and work together on a wide array of international issues covered by the UN Charter, such as development, peace and security, international law, etc.
The theme for UNGA 2019 is “Galvanizing multilateral efforts for poverty eradication, quality education, climate action and inclusion.”
