The Federal Republic of Lostisland will be attending the UN General Assembly High-level Week virtually in an informal capacity from the 18th to the 26th of September 2023.
Lostisland will be represented by Professor Aniebiet Inyang Ntui, the Honorary Consul of Lostisland to Nigeria.
The UN General Assembly High-level Week is a series of high-level meetings and events that take place in New York City each year. The week includes the General Debate, the SDG Summit, the High-level Dialogue on Financing for Development, and the Climate Ambition Summit, among other events.
Lostisland is not a member of the United Nations. This means that the representative will not be able to speak at the General Debate and other high-level events. However, they will be able to attend and observe all of the meetings and events. Professor Ntui will be meeting with other delegates, major groups and officials to discuss priorities on sustainable development and climate action.
The 78th session of the United Nations General Assembly marks a crucial milestone in the journey towards achieving the 2030 Agenda and the urgent need to put the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) back on track.
19-23 and 26 September
World leaders gather to engage in the annual high-level General Debate under the theme, “Rebuilding trust and reigniting global solidarity: Accelerating action on the 2030 Agenda and its Sustainable Development Goals towards peace, prosperity, progress and sustainability for all.” Heads of State and Government and ministers explore solutions to the intertwined global challenges to advance peace, security, and sustainable development.
18 – 19 September
Heads of State and Government will gather at UN Headquarters in New York on 18-19 September 2023 to review the implementation of the 2030 Agenda and its 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and provide high-level political guidance on transformative and accelerated actions leading up to the target year of 2030 for achieving the Goals.

Alongside the SDG Summit, United Nations Secretary-General António Guterres will convene the Climate Ambition Summit, with a call on every leader from Governments, business, cities and regions, civil society, and financial institutions to step up. The UN chief urges individuals or organizations participating in the event to present credible, serious and new climate action and nature-based solutions that will move the needle forward and respond to the urgency of the climate crisis.
