United Nations - European Union Partnership Report
This seven annual Partnership Report Improving Lives: Partnership between the United Nations and the European Union in 2011 conveys results of a vibrant partnership that spans over 110 countries across the globe. The web photo report will take you through the results of our work on the ground.
The UN at Your Fingertips
The UN in Brussels Team takes a full advantage of its location in the heart of Europe. We regularly meet with UN and other experts, including some high-profile personalities, to talk about hot issues of the moment and their work. The results of this initiative are short video interviews/messages highlighting various UN-related issues and bringing them closer to citizens.
General Assembly grants EU higher participation status
The General Assembly on 3 May 2011 voted to upgrade the status of the European Union’s (EU) participation at the United Nations 192-member body. The General Assembly resolution (A/RES/65/276) on the participation of the EU in the work of the UN was adopted by 180 UN Member States and will allow senior EU representatives to present to the Assembly the common positions of the European bloc. Syria and Zimbabwe abstained and 10 countries did not vote.
MDGs - the Brussels perspective
World leaders agreed to recommit political will and financial resources to achieve key global development targets in health, hunger, poverty and education made a decade ago to be reached by 2015. The UN team in Brussels has been focusing its partnership work with the European institutions to maintain Europe’s strong engagement in advancing on those targets known as the Millennium Development Goals.
The United Nations team brings together 26 specialised agencies, funds and programmes spanning the development, humanitarian and human rights work of the UN. The Director of the UN Office in Brussels is the representative of the UN Secretary-General to the European Union institutions. The team works to build understanding and support for UN system activities within the EU institutions and amongst a wider public in Europe.
