INTESDA Supports the Summit of the Future in 2024

Takayuki Yamada, INTESDA Chairperson

Dear Friends,

As the global community has now emerged from a three-year pandemic, we now enter a new chapter in history: Post-COVID-19 Era. As such, we must remain steadfastly vigilant in our continued support to meet the Sustainable Development Goals. 

We support the Common Agenda of the United Nations, which is working towards the Summit of the Future, planned for September 2024. As the UN recently reported, “major global shocks in recent years – including the COVID-19 pandemic, the Ukraine war, and the triple planetary crisis, among others – have challenged our international institutions. Unity around our shared principles and common goals is both crucial and urgent.

The Summit of the Future is a once-in-a-generation opportunity to enhance cooperation on critical challenges and address gaps in global governance, reaffirm existing commitments including to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the United Nations Charter, and move towards a reinvigorated multilateral system that is better positioned to positively impact people’s lives. Building on the SDG Summit in 2023, Member States will consider ways to lay the foundations for more effective global cooperation that can deal with today’s challenges as well as new threats in the future.”

Thank you all for your support.

Yours most sincerely,

Takayuki Yamada
INTESDA, Founder and Chairperson
