What does the GA achieve?

The Week - Junior - - All About The Un General Assembly -

Ev­ery year, the UN Gen­eral Assem­bly works to find so­lu­tions to the world’s prob­lems. These so­lu­tions are of­ten de­cided af­ter the GA de­bate. For ex­am­ple, in 2015 all 193 coun­tries agreed to the Sus­tain­able Devel­op­ment Goals. The goals in­clude get­ting rid of hunger, giv­ing ev­ery­one ac­cess to clean wa­ter and ed­u­ca­tion for all. How­ever, some peo­ple don’t think the Gen­eral Assem­bly is do­ing enough. Some peo­ple say that the GA de­bate is sim­ply an op­por­tu­nity for world lead­ers to show off.
