As the @UN turns 75, the question of Palestine remains distressingly unresolved.

On #PalestineDay, let's renew our commitment to the Palestinian people in their quest to achieve their rights and build a future of peace, dignity, justice and security.

Ending violence against women is everyone’s business.

@UN_Women explains 10 ways we can all make a difference during the #16Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence, and every day.

The trillions of dollars needed for #COVID19 recovery are borrowed money from future generations.

We cannot use these resources to lock-in policies that burden them with a mountain of debt on a broken and dangerous planet.

Violence against women & girls is rooted in unequal gender power relations, structural inequality & discrimination.

Addressing the issue requires listening to the voices of those affected and prioritizing women’s leadership in finding solutions. #16Days

Women’s full and meaningful participation and leadership must be at the core of all efforts to end conflict-related sexual violence.

It's time to eradicate gender-based violence forever. #16Days

12.6 million people living with HIV still do not have access to treatment that could help them live long, healthy lives.

We need more global solidarity and shared responsibility to ensure health for all becomes a reality.

Amid #COVID19, rates of domestic violence have dramatically escalated.

I renew my appeal for peace in homes around the world and urge all governments to put women’s safety first as they respond to the pandemic. #16Days

I'm very concerned about the situation in Tigray.

International humanitarian law must be respected by all parties.

I urge Ethiopian leaders to do everything possible to protect civilians, uphold human rights & ensure humanitarian access.

Violence against women & girls is a global emergency requiring urgent action at all levels, in all spaces & by all people.

On Wednesday's International Day to End Violence against Women I reiterate my appeal to end this shadow pandemic once & for all.

In #COVID19 we face not only an unprecedented crisis - but the opportunity to make real, foundational, and necessary change.

The global economy can be rebuilt to leave no one behind.

Carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere hit a new record in 2019 and are expected to keep rising, despite #COVID19 lockdown.

Every country, city, financial institution & company should adopt plans for reaching net zero emissions by 2050.

Afghan women are playing a central role in creating peaceful communities with more opportunities for all.

It is essential that the peace process in Afghanistan is inclusive and that women are allowed to contribute in a meaningful way to its outcome.

I'm deeply concerned about continued high levels of violence in Afghanistan, particularly recent attacks on civilians, including students.

I call for the redoubling of efforts towards an immediate, unconditional ceasefire to save lives & prevent the further spread of #COVID19.

In some of the most violent parts of the world, levels of femicide - the killing of women – are comparable to a war zone.

I repeat my call for urgent, comprehensive action on gender-related killings & gender-based violence.

Quoted @FilippoGrandi

The @UN General Assembly has re-elected me High Commissioner for Refugees until 30 June 2023.

I am humbled, and grateful to Secretary-General @antonioguterres for his support.

My UNHCR colleagues and I will keep working hard with refugees, displaced, stateless people worldwide.

Congratulations to @FilippoGrandi on your re-election as High Commissioner for @Refugees. I look forward to continue working together in support of the millions of people uprooted by war and persecution.

I am very pleased that the most recent Ebola outbreak in the Democratic Republic of the Congo is over.

Having seen the resilience of survivors & health workers there last year, I know that the same spirit of solidarity that led to this success must guide #COVID19 global efforts.

As of September, the rescue packages of #G20 countries have committed 50% more funding to support fossil fuels than to low-carbon energy.

Fossil fuel subsidies should have no place in any rational #COVID19 recovery plan.

A great & growing global coalition for net zero emissions by 2050 is taking shape.

I firmly believe that 2021 can be a new kind of leap year — the year of a quantum leap towards carbon neutrality.

We must all make that leap together.

We must ensure that #COVID19 vaccines are treated as a global public good — a people’s vaccine accessible and affordable to everyone, everywhere.

This is not a “do-good” exercise, it is the only way to stop the pandemic dead in its tracks.

Solidarity is survival.
