When health facilities have sufficient and reliable power, women can more safely give birth at night in well-lit delivery rooms, medical equipment can be better sterilized, and clinics can preserve lifesaving vaccines. However, in most of sub-Saharan #Africa, roughly one-third of health facilities have reliable access to electricity.
.
#Solar energy is changing this reality. This past fall, the United Nations Foundation began an innovative project to electrify health facilities with the power of the sun. With support from @dfid_uk, we are implementing off-grid solar power systems at 62 primary health care facilities in #Uganda and #Ghana.

@unpeacekeeping helps countries navigate the difficult path from conflict to #peace. By utilizing international expertise and experience, @unitednations peacekeepers can bring peace and security to unstable regions at a cost-effective rate. In fact, for American taxpayers, it is eight times cheaper for the United States to financially support UN Peacekeeping missions than to deploy U.S. military forces.

At the @unitednations headquarters in New York, Lumen Martin Winter's mural "Titans" portrays five giants representing the five continents moving the world out of darkness into light. The mural acted as an appropriate backdrop for today's #InvestorSummit2018 which focused on the challenges and opportunities of investing in climate action. With bold ambition from the world's investors, we can realize the full potential of the world’s efforts to tackle climate change.

The start of a new year is often a time for reflection and resolution. @unitednations Secretary-General António Guterres shared a message with the world for 2018, saying: “As we begin 2018, I call for unity. I truly believe we can make our world more safe and secure. We can settle conflicts, overcome hatred, and defend shared values. But we can only do that together…I urge leaders everywhere to make this New Year’s resolution: Narrow the gaps. Bridge the divides. Rebuild trust by bringing people together around common goals.”

After four years of conflict in #SouthSudan, suffering continues to grow, needs are outpacing resources, and the international community must continue to focus on helping vulnerable people while urging #peace. According to @un_ocha , 7.6 million people in South Sudan are in need of aid. The @UnitedNations, alongside local communities and humanitarian partners, are urgently working to provide support.

Repost from @cookstoves: Did you know globally🌍, women spend 4x as much time cooking and preparing meals compared to men? Introducing more efficient cookstoves and alternative fuels can significantly reduce time poverty and unpaid work.

As leaders came together for #COP23 this November, hundreds of Instagram users united to share their unique perspective on #climatechange - from the banks of the Amazon to the edge of the Arctic.

Thank you for joining our #EyeOnClimate campaign to heighten the urgency for bold #ClimateAction. Your photos and stories serve as powerful testimonies for why climate change can no longer be viewed as a distant issue. It’s clear that we already witness real impacts in many of our most pressing challenges, including hunger, gender equality, ocean health, and more. That’s why action on #climate is essential to achieving a healthy, sustainable world for all.

We can only see this bright future with our #EyeOnClimate.

As we conclude our #EyeOnClimate series, we are looking up and ahead toward powerful climate solutions. This photo from photojournalist @gretarybus highlights a very visible solution many of us see every day, yet often don’t recognize: forests. According to @nature_org, reforesting the millions of hectares of lands that have been cleared for human activity could absorb billions of tonnes of carbon dioxide without disrupting food production.

In this photo, a young man harvests maria fruits in Panama, a country facing the pressures of #deforestation. As is Guna tradition, when he was born, his family planted a series of plants to sustain him and teach him about farming as he grew into an adult.
.
"The Guna, we have a coast full of forests. And we know it captures carbon from the air, so we protect it, while developed countries have destroyed forests. Indigenous people and poor people like us are keeping forests, helping control heat. Now that big countries are discussing #climatechange, they should prioritize helping poor countries to protect forests."

On the final day of our #EyeOnClimate series - a campaign dedicated to raising awareness of climate change impacts and solutions around the @UnitedNations’ Annual Meeting on Climate Change, #COP23 - we’re sharing this photo taken by adventure photographer @funforlouis:

“Flying into Christmas Island showed me the scary reality of #climatechange. The aerial view is stunning but it’s easy to see how rising water levels will affect these low-lying islands. Sadly large parts of the territory could be underwater by 2050.”

For vulnerable island communities, such as Christmas Island, the effects of climate change are already taking hold. At COP23, the Fijian Presidency united the global community under the powerful perspective of island communities facing rising sea levels, intensified cyclones, persistent droughts, and more. Together, with leaders from 197 nations, they forged actions to bring the goals of the #ParisAgreement to life and to hold warming well below 2°C.

.@johnnovis shared this photo for our ongoing #EyeOnClimate series—a campaign dedicated to raising awareness of climate change impacts and solutions around the @UnitedNations’ Annual Meeting on Climate Change, #COP23:
.
“This photo, titled, ‘Crescent Moon Spring Along the Silk Road’ was shot for @greenpeace from a microlight plane about 6 kilometers south of Dunhuang Cit­y, Gansu, China. Crescent Moon Spring is an oasis in the desert surrounded by the Echoing Sand Mountain. The formation of the lake resulted from a geological peculiarity and natural wonder where the topography of the sand dunes force the incoming desert winds to spiral before finally retreating in an easterly direction. Thus, the sands do not smother the spring. The natural harmony between the spring and the dunes has attracted visitors for many years, eventually becoming a World Heritage Site by @UNESCO. However, since the 19­70s, #climatechange, tourism and industrialization have caused the lake to shrink dramatically in size and depth. Concerned scientists and environmentalists are currently studying changes in glacial melt from the distant Qilian Mountains, which feeds the Dang River, as a potential cause.”

Many Norwegian people tell stories about the annual snows arriving many months too late, and being too sparse. Hunters say the patterns and habitats of animals have made it hard to hunt, fisherman say the seas have become more acidic, and reindeer herders are losing animals due to changing weather patterns.

"We are destroying the earth. The weather will continue to be unstable. I think it is mostly done by humans, by lots of things we do. Our industries. Now we have several seasons in a week."
