It was the 69th global conference and the first to be held on global south. It brought together various stakeholders from UN agencies, UN Member States, International organizations, youth change makers, academia, public opinion makers, and international media to discuss issues of global concern. The conference not only focuses on strengthening the civil society for realization of sustainable development goals, but also shapes a future of global and sustainable progress.

UN Civil Society Co-Chair, Carole Ageng’o highlighted that the conference has three objectives including inclusivity in which diversity of the civil society is recognized, being impactful where the civil society works together to support the implementation of the Pact of the Future, which is negotiated by the government and innovation noting a highly digitalized world with a lot of digital innovations which we can use to solve modern problems. The first day would reflect on the Pacts of the Future and the declaration of future generations and reflect on how to work together and what things need to be done to strengthen the collaboration.

The other UNCS Co Chair said that the conference is a step toward the Summit of the Future that will be held on September 22-23, 2024 at the UN headquarters in New York, adding that the civil society must also find ways of engaging with the government and bringing its voices to the table through processes that are available in the government.

UN Resident Coordinator in Kenya, Dr. Stephen Jackson said that the civil society plays a vital reason in multilateralism during the 21st century emphasizing that there is need for a multilateralism that has the societies’ voices powerfully and impactfully present. He highlighted that Summit of the Future and the Pact is structured around five categories in which all of them should be of concern to the society which include : Sustainable development and financing for development, International Peace and Security, Science, technology and innovation and digital cooperation / The Global Digital Compact, Youth and Future Generations / The Declaration on Future Generations and Transforming global governance. UN Resident Coordinator stated that the journey towards achieving sustainable funds would be made difficult by things like conflict, climate crisis, Covid-19 among others.

El pasado 08 de mayo la Embajadora Giovanna Valverde Stark sostuvo un encuentro bilateral con la delegación de Arabia Saudita, durante la sesión del Consejo Ejecutivo de ONU Hábitat en Nairobi, Kenia.

La reunión se llevó a cabo con el Director Ejecutivo, señor Khalid AlBaker, del "Quality of Life Program" del Reino de Arabia Saudita y la señora Norah Alyusuf , asesora senior del proyecto.
