UNGA 78: Massari to Second Committee, Italy renews its commitment to advance 2030 Agenda

NEW YORK, OCTOBER 4 – Addressing the Second Committee of the 78th General Assembly, the Italian Permanent Representative to the UN, Ambassador Maurizio Massari, renewed Italy’s full commitment to advance the 2030 Agenda in all its dimensions.

“Despite crises, Italy’s Official Development Assistance has continued to increase, also in support of the UN System, and focusing on the most vulnerable countries. 10 out of 20 high-Priority Countries of the Italian Development Cooperation are Least Developed Countries (LDCs). We are also continuing to actively support SIDS and LLDCs with many political, financial and technical initiatives”, said Massari adding that “Italy is financially supporting both the SIDS and LLDCs Conference and related processes, as we head towards Antigua and Barbuda and Rwanda next year”.

In addition, the new Italian Climate Fund, with 840 million euros per year for 4 years, will contribute to address all aspects of climate change, including adaptation, in developing Countries. Italy is also investing on science and technology and recently allocated 350 million of investments in new technologies in agriculture with projects and initiatives which will also benefit the Global South.

“As highlighted by the Italian Deputy Prime Minister at the SDG Summit, one of the keys for global action is in the sustainable development of Africa. We will continue to work with partner to address the root causes of forced migration and instill and grow peace and prosperity for African Nations. But ODA will not be enough and that’s why we are working for comprehensive public-private partnerships in order to channel additional investments from the private sector in Africa and beyond”.
