Welcome to Update August 2018 Several important meetings all focusing on creating a more peaceful and sustainable world for all its inhabitants are recorded in this Update. The 2018 High Level Political Forum where we reviewed progress on the sustainable development goals aimed at creating a more peaceful and sustainable world where we leave no one behind. We witnessed and participated in the final stages of the Global Compact on Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration process. The UN NGO/ DPI Conference on We the Peoples… Together Finding Global Solutions for Global Problems was held on 22 – 24 August 2018. Read about the people from our NGO who took part in those events and those who visited our office and the United Nations recently. It was also an important time for the future of the migrant children, women and men throughout the world.
