High – Level Ministerial Meeting for the Africa region
4 November 2020

Honorable Chairperson of SWA – Mr. Kevin Rudd,
Excellencies fellow ministers and
Representatives of Development Partners
Distinguished participants

I feel honored to represent my country Eritrea in this SWA High Ministerial virtual meeting. I congratulate the organizers of this event, which will be a medium for sharing experience on how the participating countries have been implementing the WASH program, and the way forward.
.
To reiterate the obvious and commonly narrated adage, water is life, i.e. it is a fundamental resource for life sustenance. Due to the defining role that it plays in securing socio-economic development and overall human wellbeing, access to adequate and safe water, sanitation and hygiene services is basically a human rights issue. With this outlook, Eritrea is working with great commitment to ensure this right for its citizens and to realize the SDGs by 2030. The progress that Eritrea made in this regard is appreciable when compared to the awful condition that prevailed before its independence. Read more

The United Nations at 75: Ambitions, Contributions, Challenges

by Dr. Fikrejesus Amahazion | Recently, the United Nations (UN) gathered for its annual general assembly meeting– virtually. Due to the COVID-19 global pandemic, national leaders did not travel to the UN, located in New York, to deliver their addresses, instead doing so via prerecorded video messages. As well, most of the usual events and proceedings related to the annual gathering were held virtually. In addition to the challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic and widespread economic disruption, this is a unique year for the global organization: 2020 marks 75 years since it was formed. This important occasion is an ideal time and useful opportunity to take a closer look at the UN. In the following article, I review the UN’s general history, briefly noting some of its key achievements and challenges. In the next edition of Eritrea Profile, I will discuss the UN’s historic relations with Eritrea. Read more
