As the year draws to a close, the United Nations (UN) has released a video that chronicles the important events of the year 2015.

According to the UN, it was a year of triumphal moments and haunting images: A little boy, washed up on the shore symbolising the plight of 60 million refugees; people in Paris, Beirut and Nairobi running from terror attacks and countries ruined in relentless battles.

The “UN Year in Review 2015” remembers once more the daunting challenges the United Nations faced in its 70th anniversary year – but also gives a glimpse of what can be achieved, when all work together.

It outlines the potential of constructive dialogue in the Iran Nuclear Deal – the global collaborative effort to curb Ebola – and the unity of all Member States to invest in the future of the planet by unanimously adopting the Sustainable Development Agenda to end extreme poverty and the historic Paris Agreement, to join hands in climate action and prevent further global temperature rise.
