Conference Introduction
“The 70th Anniversary of United Nations is an opportunity to take stock of its enduring achievements but also an opportunity to spotlight where the UN entities and the International Community need to redouble their efforts to meet current and future challenges.”–UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon

Very important institutions are based in Vienna which work for the safe, secure and peaceful use of nuclear energy (IAEA), the peaceful use of outer space (UNOOSA) and the prevention of terrorism, organised crime, and drug trafficking (UNODC). UNIDO is dedicated to the creation of shared prosperity and inclusive and sustainable development – the basis for a peaceful world. CTBTO Executive Secretary, Lassina Zerbo, has reminded us that the 70th anniversary of Hiroshima and Nagasaki recalls the real dangers of nuclear weapons and the need for a total ban on nuclear testing. The recent Vienna Iran agreement and the important role given to the IAEA emphasise the important activities carried out by the Vienna based organisations, including the OSCE. Representatives from these institutions, diplomats, and academics will discuss, in inter- active sessions, the challenges and how the UN system and the international community can deliver to overcome emerging challenges and ensure a peaceful and more sustainable world.
