Overview

The United Nations is an international organization founded in 1945 after the Second World War by 51 countries committed to maintaining international peace and security, developing friendly relations among nations and promoting social progress, better living standards and human rights. Due to its unique international character, and the powers vested in its founding Charter, the Organization can take action on a wide range of issues, and provide a forum for its 192 Member States to express their views, through the General Assembly, the Security Council, the Economic and Social Council and other bodies and committees.

The work of the United Nations reaches every corner of the globe. Although best known for peacekeeping, peacebuilding, conflict prevention and humanitarian assistance, there are many other ways the United Nations and its System (specialized agencies, funds and programmes) affect our lives and make the world a better place. The Organization works on a broad range of fundamental issues, from sustainable development, environment and refugees protection, disaster relief, counter terrorism, disarmament and non-proliferation, to promoting democracy, human rights, gender equality and the advancement of women, governance, economic and social development and international health, clearing landmines, expanding food production, and more, in order to achieve its goals and coordinate efforts for a safer world for this and future generations.

aslamJanuary 11, 2011, New York - Minister of State for Finance and Treasury, H.E. Mr. Aslam Shakir, speaking today at the meeting of the 1st Intergovernmental Preparatory Committee for the Fourth United Nations Conference on Least Developed Countries, highlighted the importance of „smooth transition‟ for countries graduating from LDC status. Although the Maldives considered graduation to be an achievement, he said that the Maldives must not move towards the reality of life as a Middle- Income country with its “eyes wide shut”.
