You will likely hear from Stephane more about what the United Nations and partners are doing to support countries impacted by Cyclone Freddy.

President Kőrösi has said that he stands with all those affected by Cyclone Freddy in Malawi, Mozambique, and Madagascar.

He extended his personal thoughts and condolences, and commended those providing much-needed relief and support.

The Commission on the Status of Women is expected to wrap up its work today, with the Agreed Conclusions document.

You likely saw President Kőrösi’s tweet yesterday giving support to the process, and urging the authors to remember that their decisions matter outside of the negotiating room, to the women and girls looking to them for solutions.
