Commonwealth and United Nations

Sign New Agreement

Amina Jane Mohammed DSG UN.jpg

[L] United Nations Deputy Secretary-General Amina Mohammed and [R] Commonwealth Secretary-General Baroness Patricia Scotland

13 December 2019

Commonwealth Secretary-General Patricia Scotland and United Nations Deputy Secretary-General Amina Mohammed have formally committed their organisations to work more closely together.

The two leaders signed a Memorandum of Understanding today at the Commonwealth’s headquarters in Marlborough House, London. The document outlines how the two organisations will work together on pressing global issues such as governance and peace, sustainable development, inclusive growth, climate change, ending violence against women and girls and sports for development and peace.

In a joint statement, the Secretary-General of the Commonwealth and the Deputy Secretary-General of the United Nations said:

“The United Nations and Commonwealth have long shared a genuine relationship based on shared goals and values.

“We are today proud to enhance this friendship and take it to a new level which the delivery of the 2030 Agenda demands."

“As we turn to a new decade of action, the challenges we face in order to deliver on the world that we want by 2030 demand we address sustainable development, climate change, improving governance and promoting peace.”

The Commonwealth is committed to the delivery of the Sustainable Development Goals and has made particular progress on the goals of gender equality and tackling climate change.

Across the Commonwealth, gender parity is close to being achieved in primary schools. According to research undertaken by the Commonwealth Secretariat in 2018/2019, a girl is as likely to attend primary school as a boy, and in some Commonwealth countries, more likely to.

Working on tackling climate change and ocean conservation is also an area where the Commonwealth has had a significant influence. Last year, all 53 nations in the Commonwealth, covering one third of the world’s oceans, signed the Blue Charter a landmark agreement to actively co-operate on ocean governance. So far 12 nations have stepped up to lead action groups on areas such as marine pollution, ocean acidification and coral reef protection.

The agreement stresses that ‘prevention’ will underpin each of the collaborative areas and leaves the door open for additional areas of co-operation at a later date.

It is with the greatest sorrow and sadness that we mourn the passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. After a long life

of faith, duty and service, a great light has gone out.

Her Majesty was an extraordinary person, who

lived an extraordinary life: a constant

presence and example for each of us,

guiding and serving us all for

as long as any of us can remember. Throughout 

her reign, and seven decades of extraordinary

change and challenge, Her Majesty was the

epitome of duty, stability, wisdom and grace.

Commemorating D-Day: Commonwealth Secretary-General reflects on sacrifice,

unity, and enduring values

6 June 2024

Commemorating D-Day - Commonwealth Secretary-General reflects on sacrifice, unity, and end

Images / Text Courtesy, The Commonwealth

The Right Honourable Patricia Scotland KC, Commonwealth Secretary-General reflects on the 80th anniversary of the Normandy Landings.

Eighty years ago, on June 6, 1944, on the beaches of Normandy, the Allied armed undertook a feat of courage, determination and sacrifice which remains unparalleled in human history. 

Soldiers from across Commonwealth nations stood shoulder to shoulder with their friends, embarking on a mission which would change the course of history. They faced unimaginable horrors, driven by a shared resolve to restore peace and freedom to a world engulfed in tyranny.

The sacrifices made that day, and in the days that followed, were profound. Thousands laid down their lives, and countless others bore the physical and emotional scars of battle. Their bravery and selflessness are etched into the annals of history, reminding us that the freedoms we cherish today were won through the blood, sweat, and tears of those who came before us.

Today, in Portsmouth, in the presence of those who survived and remain with us to this day, I joined His Majesty King Charles III as he urged us to “never forget that the soldiers who fought in the campaign launched from this place came from 30 nations, from across the UK, the Commonwealth and Allied countries." 

In honouring the extraordinary sacrifices which were made, and remembering the turning point of the world’s largest and deadliest war, we are reminded of the unwavering spirit of purpose, cooperation and resilience and the enduring values which reflect the best of humanity. 

D-Day is not simply a memory, it shapes our world to this day, and it exemplifies the spirit of cooperation which continues to shape the modern Commonwealth. Diverse nations, united by a common purpose, worked together to achieve a goal that no single country could have accomplished alone. This unity in diversity is a cornerstone of the Commonwealth, reflecting our collective commitment to peace, democracy, and mutual respect.

As we reflect on this historic anniversary, we must also renew our commitment to the values that guided those brave souls 80 years ago. The determination to stand against oppression, the courage to fight for justice, and the willingness to cooperate for the greater good are as vital today as they were then. In a world still fraught with challenges, we must draw inspiration from their example to forge a future built on solidarity and shared purpose.

Let us honour their memory by upholding the principles of the Commonwealth—freedom, democracy, and human rights. May the legacy of D-Day inspire us to work tirelessly for a world where peace and cooperation prevail, and where the sacrifices of the past are forever remembered and revered.

The Commonwealth Secretariat and the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) have signed a new Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to strengthen their partnership in promoting inclusive and sustainable industrial development.

This agreement marks a milestone in the long-standing collaboration between the two organisations, originally established with an MoU signed on June 21, 1979.

The new MoU aims to enhance the economic growth and development of Commonwealth countries and the broader global south by leveraging the combined expertise and resources of the Commonwealth Secretariat and UNIDO. This partnership is poised to create jobs, reduce poverty, and advance progress towards the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) set for 2030.

 

After signing the MoU, Commonwealth Secretary-General Rt Hon Patricia Scotland KC said:

"We are thrilled to renew and deepen our collaboration with UNIDO. In today’s era of dynamic industrial policies, our partnership is essential for supporting the economic aspirations of our member countries, especially the Least Developed Countries (LDCs), Small Island Developing States (SIDS), and small states recovering from the COVID-19 pandemic."
