1. We need to look back to the very basic, UN aims to foster development and strengthen cooperation, isn't it? As UN Secretary General, we will be authorized as "world moderator". According to my interpretation, it is possible for us to also set certain priorities that UN should have to deal with world problems. Through this, I believe that problems relating to attainment of 17 goals in Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are to bet set as the utmost priority. SDGs are containing the most inclusive and comprehensive set of goals that member states are supposed to fulfill. Unfortunately, in reality these hardly achieved. Despite the difficulty to attain in practice, it doesn't mean that we can't put extra emphasize on them, no?
Understanding that each member states are having different level of development as well as achievement on each of those SDGs, emphasize shall be done based on its own urgency level but without necessarily forgetting basic welfare fulfillment, which mostly is made up from education and health provision. Certain states, most likely Least Developed Countries (LDCs) for instance, have not even achieved basic level of education provision (primary level). Thus, what they need to do is to accomplish basic level of education first before moving on into more advanced goals. Step by step is the key
Admittedly, there are also certain states with complete fulfillment of SDGs. However, let's not forget the value behind its name, Sustainable Development Goals mean those have to be sustainable! So, sustainability is another key state needs to achieve. This pose another level of challenge, because world is dynamic, understandably.
2. Maximize UN Role in Promotion of Global Cooperation and Security Provision
As a supranational body, we need to strengthen global cooperation in multitude aspect of life.
Realizing that UN itself consists of many councils, but our power is understandably limited, one of the best thing we can do is to facilitate. Global cooperation is on us at heart, thus it is necessary to put extra emphasis on global cooperation and security. We are responsible for world livelihood. In my state for instance, it's even put on our basic constitution.
To ensure that the recommendation each council produce is getting more and more inclusive plus comprehensive would be the key success we can actually have as our indicator.
What do we need? We need to convince more and more participation of each member states in more council. Just because you don't necessary have direct interest doesn't mean that you need not to involve and contribute your ideas along, in order to solve the issues.
Second, in the case of conventional security, I believe that we need to enhance our involvement in peacekeeping operation, but also open to another new possibilities and innovative ideas to prevent conflict to appear in the first place. I've got to admit that conflict is natural and hard to avoid as a result of clash of interest, but at the very least we can, need, and shall prevent the potential harms it might cause.
I believe that we can greatly improve our role in inclusiveness a lot more.
Is that a dream? Yes, is that a vision? Yes, Is it attainable? Big Yes!
Thus, putting utmost emphasis on UN most basic role is necessary.
And since I'm coming from a developing state, I can hopefully bring fresh ideas when especially my country is surrounded by diversity and multiculturalism.
I myself believe we can greatly reduce political influence and those mixed bag contributions from UN and be able to go into our founding principles.
That's my perspective, how about yours?
