President Yoweri Museveni is among world leaders set to address gather at United Nations Headquarters in New York for the General Assembly's annual general debate, which kicks off today (Tuesday).
The assembly aims to set the stage for building a new global development agenda which both protects the planet and promotes equity, justice and prosperity for all people.
Beginning Tuesday and continuing through October 1, the general debate will provide an opportunity for high-level political officials to weigh in on what John Ashe, President of the Assembly's 68th session, has called “pivotal” talks on identifying the parameters of the post-2015 sustainability agenda.
This will succeed the Millennium Development Goals - the eight anti-poverty targets that galvanized the world in 2000.
Over 84 heads of State, 41 heads of Government, 11 Deputy Prime Ministers and 65 Foreign Ministers are scheduled to address the Assembly on sustainable development, poverty eradication, climate change, human rights, and a range of peace and security issues.
