10 October 2008: In a message for UN Day, to be observed on
24 October 2008, UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon underlined that the global
threats of the 21st century, including climate change and the spread of disease
and deadly weapons, “spare no one.”

He stressed the need to “secure global
public goods” in order to “advance the global common good.” Referring to the
unprecedented commitment in pledges and partnerships to help the world’s poor
that was generated during the high-level Millennium Development Goals event in
September, as well as the advances on malaria, Ban called for these models to
be replicated to tackle other challenges such as climate change. [The Message]
