New York, NY -- It’s official! On December 11, the UN General Assembly unanimously adopted a resolution explicitly highlighting the valuable contributions of WFUNA and UNAs in mobilizing public support for the UN. It is a rare privilege for a civil society organization to be mentioned in a General Assembly resolution in this way. The last time WFUNA was included in a resolution was nearly three decades ago, in 1986.

WFUNA Secretary-General Bonian Golmohammadi was present at the General Assembly when the decision was taken by member states. We hope that you share in our excitement to have received this important recognition, and that all UNAs will be able to use this resolution to help strengthen their platforms.

Resolution A/68/428, Article VI.85 reads:

"Recalls its resolution 41/68 D of 3 December 1986, commends the World Federation of United Nations Associations and its more than 100 national United Nations associations for the valuable contributions they have made during the past 67 years through their global activities in the mobilization of popular support for the United Nations, and calls for continued collaboration between the World Federation and the Department of Public Information in support of their complementary objectives;"
