    Violence against women and girls is one of the most widespread violations of human rights. According to a 2013 WHO global study, 35 per cent of women worldwide have experienced either physical and/or sexual violence. However, some national studies show that up to 70 per cent of women have experienced physical and/or sexual violence in their lifetime from an intimate partner.

    To raise awareness and trigger action to end this global scourge, the UN observes International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women on 25 November. The date marks the brutal assassination in 1960 of the three Mirabal sisters, political activists in the Dominican Republic.

    Every year, 25 November and the ensuing 16 Days of Activism against Gender Violence which follow (ending on 10 December, Human Rights Day) are commemorated around the world, providing individuals and groups a chance to mobilize and call attention to the urgent need to end violence against women and girls.

    As we mark the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, we commemorate and renew our global commitment to ending violence against women and other forms of gender-based violence.

    Africa Industrialization Day is celebrated on November 20 every year.

    It’s a period when governments and organizations in several African countries consider how to accelerate the continent’s industrialization.

    It’s also an opportunity to draw international media attention to Africa’s industrialization concerns and challenges. A geographical representation of Africa, including the island of Madagascar, is a popular symbol of Africa Industrialization Day.

    We hope that this Africa industrialization day brings some good hopes for the people.

    International Day for Preventing the Exploitation of the Environment in War and Armed Conflict is observed on November 5 each year. Humanity undeniably always suffers from war. People are killed and injured. Cities are burned to the ground. But what about the environment? Rivers, seas, and wells are polluted. Crops are burned and forests are cut down. Soils are poisoned. The natural world around us, including other living species, weather, climate, and natural resources, affects us and is affected by us.

    Therefore, this day was created to protect the environment as a guarantor of security and peace; to prevent its exploitation in military conflicts. We are all urged to speak out and reaffirm our commitment to protecting our endangered planet, even in the face of armed aggression.

    World Cities Day brings Urban October to an end on 31 October each year and was first celebrated in 2014. As with World Habitat Day, a global observance is held in a different city each year and the day focuses on a specific theme.

    This year’s global observance is planned in Shanghai, China under the theme "Act Local to Go Global." We want to bring different partners and diverse stakeholders together to share their experiences and approaches to local action, what local action worked and what is needed to empower local and regional governments to create greener, more equitable and sustainable cities.

    Local action is critical to achieve the sustainable development goals by 2030. UN-Habitat has been at the forefront of SDG localization since the very endorsement of the 2030 Agenda. Since then, UN-Habitat has been working to advance SDG localization by providing technical expertise to partners across the globe, by leading the development of cutting-edge research, by capacitating local and regional governments on SDG localization, and by strengthening the voice of local governments and local actors within the main international and UN-led fora on SDGs

    The primary goal for improving the dissemination of information and mobilizing public opinion is to create awareness for problems of development. Once the world brings its attention to the issues of development, countries around the world are better equipped to solve such problems.

    The General Assembly believes information and communication technologies are vital to solving development problems. This is especially true in the context of globalization. New solutions to development challenges have the potential to foster economic growth, increase access to information and knowledge, improve social inclusion, and eradicate poverty.

    United Nations Day is celebrated on October 24 every year. It marks the official establishment of the United Nations in 1945. On this day, the UN Charter was ratified by the majority of signatories, including the five permanent members of the Security Council, and this led to the official establishment of UN.

    Though it’s not a public holiday, people come together and celebrate the day with pomp and show in various cities in different countries. National costumes, flags, speeches, slogans, and parades are organized to mark the day and promote the idea of diversity and unity.

    The significance of United Nations Day lies in its celebration of diversity. It is an official day to appreciate the diversity of cultures, religions, and languages all over the world. On this day, countries come together to spread ideas of peace and harmony among people who originate from various backgrounds.

    Because the United Nations are famous for their work in disaster relief, humanitarian aid, peacekeeping, and international unity, every 24 October we celebrate its anniversary as a reminder of the importance of:

    • Diversity
    • The cooperative spirit among nations
    • Equality
    • Peace
    • Unity
    • Universal respect for justice and international law
    • Human rights, fundamental freedoms

    Dignity for all in practice is the umbrella theme of the International Day for the Eradication of Poverty for 2022-2023. The dignity of the human being is not only a fundamental right in itself but constitutes the basis of all other fundamental rights. Therefore, “Dignity” is not an abstract concept: it belongs to each and every one.

    Today, many people living in persistent poverty experience their dignity being denied and disrespected.

    The International Day for the Eradication of Poverty promotes dialogue and understanding between people living in poverty and their communities, and society at large.

    We hope you take time today to spend time reflecting on the state of our world when it comes to those living in poverty, and that it inspires you to be a part of helping to partner with those in impoverished communities to end poverty now.

    World Food Day is being marked with multiple global challenges including climate change, rising prices and international tensions. All of this is affecting global food security.

    It’s time to work together and create a better, more sustainable future for all.

    We all have a role to play; whether we grow, process, transport, store, sell, buy, prepare or serve food, food safety is in all our hands. And if we work together, we can all help achieve safer food for better health.

    Aside from that, this day is also dedicated to farm workers, fishers, grocers, chefs, producers, and everyone else who plays a role in creating sustainable and resilient global food systems.
