Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon: Sustainable development tops agenda for 21st century

Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon today wrapped up a four-nation visit to the South Pacific with a call for countries to "connect the dots" between issues such as climate change, food insecurity and water scarcity and work towards ensuring sustainable development for all.

"The sustainable development agenda is the agenda for the 21st century," Mr. Ban told an audience at the University of Sydney in Australia, the last stop on a week-long trip that also took the United Nations chief to the Solomon Islands, Kiribati and New Zealand.
