Nations Headquarters, the General Assembly this morning began its annual
general debate, which defines international responses to many of the global
challenges of today, including protracted conflicts, extreme poverty and
hunger, the refugee crisis and climate change under the theme of “The
Sustainable Development Goals: a universal push to transform our world.”

The general debate is expected to run through Monday, 26 September. The
high-level segment of the General Assembly’s 71st session

and migrants <http://refugeesmigrants.un.org/>.

World leaders adopted a political declaration as an outcome document at the
summit, during which the UN saw a new addition to its family – a dedicated
migration agency. Leaders of the UN and the International Organization for
Migration (IOM) signed an agreement to officially make IOM a related agency
of the UN system.
