STORYLINE
2014 – The biggest ever Outbreak of Ebola wreaking havoc in West Africa - new depths of terror in the Middle East - tensions turning violent in Eastern Europe – a world struggling to cope as crises piled up. The United Nations called on World Leaders to be resourceful, nurture the seeds of hope - and unite in decisive action.
SOUNDBITE (English) Ban Ki-moon, UN Secretary-General:
“From Barrel Bombs to beheadings, from the deliberate starvation of civilians to the assault on hospitals, UN shelters and aid convoys, human rights and the rule of law are under attack.”

In Iraq and Syria, spill-over effects of conflict uprooted more than a million people. Foreign fighters used the power vacuum to get large areas under their control, shocking the world with extreme violence.

Frightened locals fled into the remote Sinjar mountains, thousands were seeking shelter in an unfinished high-rise in Dohuk.

UN Aid agencies started huge operations to airlift supplies to remote and dangerous areas. More funding is needed to prepare the camps for a harsh winter.

In September, world leaders in the Security Council united to adopt a historic resolution to fight this new form of terrorism on all levels.

SOUNDBITE, (English), Barack Obama, US President and President of the UN Security Council under US Presidency in September 2015:
“Especially, nations are required to “prevent and suppress the recruiting, organizing, transporting or equipping” of foreign terrorist fighters, as well as the financing of their travel or activities.”

The elimination of Syria’s chemical weapons program showed what can happen when the Security Council is united in its determination. The most critical chemicals were neutralized on board of a ship. This deal was brokered by the US and Russia and overseen by the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons and the UN.

SOUNDBITE, (English), Sigrid Kaag, Special Coordinator, Joint Mission by Organization of the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons and UN:
“What is important, however, that all the materials are out of harm’s way and the destruction can start as soon as possible aboard the US ship.”

Israeli-Palestinian violence flared up in the wake of the kidnapping and murder of 3 Israeli teenagers in June. Weeks of conflict and retaliation left more than 1300 Palestinians and 60 Israelis dead.

People in Gaza had no safe place to go – more than 100.000 Palestinians sought shelter in UN schools. Six times UN schools were shelled, the only power plant was destroyed, almost half a million people lost their homes.
Ban Ki-moon visited Gaza to jump start the international reconstruction effort.

SOUNDBITE, (English) Ban Ki-moon, UN Secretary-General:
“Do we have to continue like this, build, destroy, and build and destroy? We will build again, but this must be the last time to rebuild. They must go back to the negotiating table.”

In Ukraine, an internal political crisis transcended into violent clashes in parts of the country, reaching full scale conflict in the east. Conditions deteriorated, with serious consequences for the country’s unity and stability. Despite a ceasefire agreement, the situation remains extremely fragile.

In July, a Malaysian Airlines Plane broke apart over Ukraine, due to penetration by a large number of “high-energy objects from outside the aircraft” – killing almost 300 people from 9 countries. The UN Security Council urged to speed up the investigation – and prevent similar tragedies from happening again.

In the Central African Republic, sectarian violence and reprisal killings between Christians and Moslems left the country fractured and traumatised. People marched with machetes through the capital, sending thousands to flee and hide in the bush. The UN Mission’s call for voluntary disarmament saw only low turnout.

Cash-for-work programs try to promote cooperation between the factions. In a tense security situation two million people still need humanitarian aid.

20 years after the Genocide in Rwanda, the UN charts a new approach putting people first, by giving their human rights priority so that the world would not have to say again “never again.” The Human Rights Up Front Initiative aims to place human rights at the centre of all efforts in the field.

In South Sudan, the need for early action against Human Rights violations led to providing shelter for nearly 100.000 people at the UN bases. The logistical challenges were tremendous, especially during the rainy season. Peacekeeping clinics even had to deal with delivering babies.

In 2014, the world counted more than 50 million refugees, the highest number since the end of World War II – a population that would make up the 26th largest country on Earth. Host countries and the UN were challenged to provide life-saving supplies – and hope for a future. Women and children often suffered the most.

Malala Yousoufzai, who later won the Nobel Peace Prize, visited Zaatari Camp in Jordan to promote more accessible education for all children.

SOUNDBITE, (English), Malala Yousoufzai, Nobel Peace Price Laureate and Advocate for Girl's Education:
“They all have a dream, some want to become doctors, some want to become engineers and some want to be journalists.”

Afghanistan, still one of the biggest source countries for refugees, went through disputed presidential elections that ended in an agreement to form a government of national unity. Even with a fragile peace, conditions for civilians and peacekeepers alike remained dangerous.

Four UN Colleagues were killed when the Taliban attacked a restaurant in Kabul.
Worldwide, through the end of October, 113 blue helmets paid with their lives for the cause of peace. In Mali a convoy hit a landmine, four peacekeepers died. Two others were killed in a suicide attack. In Darfur, three peacekeepers were killed in a sudden attack while protecting a water borehole.

Mourning in Guinea. When little Emile died, nobody imagined his village would become ground zero for the worst Ebola epidemic ever recorded. Spreading like wildfire, the disease turned Guinea, Sierra Leone and Liberia upside down – by December, more than 6000 people had died, the living were paralyzed in fear, economy and health services had nearly collapsed.

As treatment centres overflowed, the international community had to speed up its response.

SOUNDBITE (English) Margaret Chan, Director of the World Health Organization:
“This is a social crisis, a humanitarian crisis, an economic crisis, and a threat to national security well beyond the outbreak zones."

The Security Council urged speedy action to fight the epidemic. The UN’s Ebola Emergency Response Mission was deployed within days. An unprecedented airlift operation has started to bring ambulances, field clinics and medical supplies to the affected countries as well as food to people who can’t go to the markets or to their fields. Clinical trials for two vaccines have started. It is a race against time.

Meanwhile the Earth is sitting on thin ice. 2014 may set a record as the hottest year ever. Ban Ki-moon travelled to Greenland to inspect the status of arctic glaciers and called for action to curb global temperature rise.

In New York, 400.000 people, including world leaders and celebrities, marched for a cleaner, greener future.

SOUNDBITE, (English), Ban Ki-moon, UN Secretary-General:
"There is no Plan B, because we don't have a Planet B.”

At the UN Climate Summit, 120 world leaders joined forces with business, finance and energy leaders - and heard an urgent plea from Leonardo di Caprio.

SOUNDBITE (English) Leonardo di Caprio, actor:
"We are seeing extreme weather events, and the west Antarctica and the Greenland's ice sheet are melting at unprecedented rates decades ahead of scientific projections. None of this is rhetoric and none of this is hysteria. It is fact.”

At the summit, over 200 billion Dollars of financial assets from the private sector were committed to move to greener investments.

Building “a future we want” includes ending the marginalization of indigenous people, as projected at their First World Conference in New York, it includes climate change resistant agriculture like here in Samoa, access to sustainable energy for all – and access to toilets and sanitation for the billion people who have none.
