UN has become a "people centric" organization

The United Nations has become what has been described by a senior UN official as a "people centric" organization as it approaches its 70th anniversary.

The global celebration of the anniversary kicked off on 26 June 2014, to mark the signing of the UN Charter in San Francisco in the United States in 1945.

The sixteen month commemoration will culminate on the 70th anniversary of the entry into force of the Charter on 24 October 2015.

Derrick Mbatha sat down with Ramu Damodaran, who deals with Partnerships and Public Engagement at the UN, and first asked him what the 70th anniversary is marking.
