UNITED NATIONS: UN Deputy Secretary-General Amina Mohammed has warned against fragmented approaches to global challenges of conflict and insecurity. "Conflict, climate change and stalled progress on development reinforce each other. But too often, our efforts to address them are fragmented," Mohammed told a Security Council high-level debate on "contemporary drivers of conflict and insecurity", Xinhua news agency reported.

The COVID-19 pandemic has already shown that rapid change is possible, as millions of people adopt new ways of working, learning and socializing, she said on Tuesday.

"As we recover, we cannot go back to the failed frameworks and systems that created the fragilities and inequalities that are being exploited by the pandemic. We must build forward better."

The pandemic has highlighted the necessity of investing in inclusive, equitable governance and institutions, as well as tackling the root causes, in order to address the drivers not only of conflict but of crises and shocks of all kinds. (IANS)
