Each year, the Better World Campaign (BWC) and the United Nations Association of the USA (UNA-USA) build support for United States policies that reinforce U.S. engagement with the United Nations and educate people about the real benefits the U.S. receives through our relationship with the UN. In 2022, we are working with the Biden Administration and 117th Congress to accomplish the following, so that the UN can better address the transnational challenges of the 21st century:
payment of outstanding arrears and full funding of our nation’s UN regular budget and peacekeeping assessments on time and without conditions;
U.S. assistance to UN peacekeeping operations to strengthen each mission’s capabilities in logistics, training, doctrine, and management expertise;
the value of UN funds, programs, and agencies in advancing American interests;
constructive engagement on structural and management reforms at the UN and the continued implementation of ongoing reforms;
for full U.S. engagement with key UN bodies, including the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO);
action towards achieving the 17 Sustainable Development Goals adopted by the UN General Assembly in 2015; and
Senate ratification of key multilateral agreements.
