serdariStatement by the Deputy Minister for Social Welfare of the Republic of Cyprus, H.E. Ms. Marilena Evangelou Serdari at the 62nd Session of the Commission for Social Development

United Nations, York, 6 February 2024

 

Madame Chair,

Cyprus fully aligns with the statement delivered by the European Union.

First, allow me to extend our warmest appreciation to you, the Members of the Bureau and United Nations’ Department of Economic and Social Affairs, for the preparation of  the 62nd Session of the Commission for Social Development.

Madame Chair,

Halfway to the deadline for the 2030 Agenda, progress on more than 50 per cent of targets of the Sustainable Development Goals is insufficient,  while around one third has stalled or gone into reverse, according to the Sustainable Development Goal of 2023, including targets on poverty and hunger as well.

Poverty is a complex and multidimensional challenge, worsened by factors such as instability and fragility caused by conflicts, climate change and pandemics.
