By Aaron Humes: Resident Coordinator of United Nations programs in Belize, Birgit Gerstenberg, has saluted Belize on the occasion of Independence Day and, four days later, acceding to the U.N.
Forty years later, says Gerstenberg, “The United Nations and Belize share a longstanding strategic relationship with strong cooperation on our shared priorities of democracy, prosperity, sustainable development, gender equality, no poverty, climate action, peace and security, human rights, and the rule of law.”
She cites the challenges of the pandemic as an opportunity to support Belize and called for a new Cooperation Framework with the ambition of accelerating action on sustainable development issues to advance the well-being of the people of Belize within this decade of action. “I am confident that by working together, we will see a brighter future and an even stronger partnership,” she stated.
She continued, “This year’s theme “Belize at 40: Hopeful Hearts, Steady Hands; Together We Rise” not only highlights the positive culture of Belize and its people but provides a message of solidarity as only together united in purpose can we succeed…We, the United Nations Agencies, Funds and Programmes thank you for your friendship and partnership and cannot wait to celebrate your wonderful years of independence with you!”
