Session 2:

Purpose: Security and development are inextricably linked. By helping to prevent and detect crime, protect life and property, and maintain public order and safety in adherence to the rule of law and international human rights law, national and United Nations Police lay the seeds for lasting peace and development. At the same time, they are key players for the realization of a new vision for the rule of law, a new agenda for peace and the renewed call to action for human rights as proposed by the Secretary-General in his Our Common Agenda report.

Takeaway: An agreed way forward and concrete commitments for further equipping United Nations Police to effectively contribute to the realization of the Sustainable Development Goals and Our Common Agenda, as well as Women, Peace and Security commitments and priorities.
