2018 provides another opportunity to consider how our local concerns are dealt with at the United Nations and how we contribute. The 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights is commemorated this year. By September 2018 it is hoped to have a Global Compact on Migration which will address the global and local dimensions of present day migration. The implementation of the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda will continue and hopefully advance decisively towards its completion.
