Anthony Lake at the UNICEF Executive Board's 2010 Annual Session
Narrator: UNICEF Executive Director Anthony Lake delivers his closing remarks at the 2010 Annual Session of UNICEF’s Executive Board.
Anthony Lake: I was very strucked by the alarming projections and held this very good presentation a few days ago, about the almost certain effects of climate change on natural disasters in the coming years, and its strucked me listening to it. In fact, I was thinking back on the history of UNICEF, which began as an emergency agency or fund. And then wonderfully above into an organization that both does humanitarian working emergencies and development, and of course is now concentrating on the faces as you move from an emergency as in Haiti into recovery and development.
And I worry a little as we go into the future that unless we deal with this issue efficiently and make sure that we remain -- retain the priority on development as well, that UNICEF could start almost being pushed back into towards not into the towards its original mandate, and become more and more of the world’s mandate, and less dealing with the causes of poverty and disease, etc.
In the end, results are all that matters. Everything we do is for the results and I know we all believe that. We owe it to you, we owe it to the National Committees, this is an issue I remember when I was at the National Committee raising with UNICEF number of times, to be able to tell you where your money is going and where it has achieved absolutely.
But even more, even if we had all our own resources, we owe to ourselves, because unless we can properly manage or evaluate what we are doing, we can't properly set priorities.
