The promise and challenge of 2015 is the focus of this lecture by the Helen Clark, Administrator of the United Nations Development Programme. With an eye to the current and future commitments for sustainable development – economic, environmental, and social – Miss Clark surveys many areas of international concern.

She also speaks about the grounding which her political life in New Zealand gave her for her current global work, and pulls from her local experience some signs of hope for the future.
