He will also be briefed on the work that Salt Lake City and the state of Utah is doing in terms of water conservation and climate change.

Turning to the President’s schedule today…

This morning, he held a Morning Dialogue with about a dozen Permanent Representatives on rights and responsibilities for a world crisis. This was the continuation of a three-part discussion, that was started on 27 April.

Today’s focus was on human rights.

The President then took part in a workshop on relations between the General Assembly and the Security Council, organized by the Permanent Missions of Ecuador and Portugal, and UNITAR.

The President called the General Assembly and the Security Council complementary.

This afternoon, starting at 3PM ET in the Trusteeship, there will be an interactive dialogue with the candidate for the Presidency of the 78th session.

The election for the new President will be on 1 June.

Among his bilaterals today, the President will meet today with the Special Representative of the Secretary-General for Disaster Risk Reduction, Mami Mizutori.

And looking to next week…

The event of most interest to you is probably the high-level meeting on the midterm review of the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction, which be held on 18 and 19 May.
