On this 24th International Day of Older Persons, UNFPA, the United Nations Population Fund, joins the worldwide celebration of longevity and acknowledges the contributions that older persons make to their families, communities and societies. We celebrate the fact that more people are living longer and healthier lives. This is due to improvements in nutrition, sanitation, medical science, health care, education and economic well-being. - See more at: http://www.unfpa.org/public/lang/en/home/news/pid/18341#sthash.D3EypJXI.4sbA3dUT.dpuf

Belgrade, September 28th - The UN Resident Coordinator, Irena Vojackova-Sollorano joined activists in Belgrade’s first Pride Parade in 4 years, to show the UN support for the LGBT movement. The procession was a short march of a few blocks held under heavy security. An estimated 1,000 activists and their supporters carried rainbow flags and signs — some bearing the message "Pride. Normally" — while marching along eerily empty streets with anti-riot police units positioned on almost every corner.

I have just come from two days in Serbia, where I have been able to see for myself the severe impact of the floods on people, municipalities, and the country. Clearly there is a pressing need there and in Bosnia and Herzegovina to make rapid progress on meeting the needs of the most vulnerable for housing, incomes, and livelihoods, and for basic utilities and services before the harsh winter months set in.

Drug abuse and illicit trafficking have calamitous consequences for the world’s efforts to deliver greater prosperity and equality for all. There are up to 200,000 preventable deaths each year from overdoses. Illicit drugs spawn criminal violence and weaken a state’s essential institutions.
