  • Group of 20, the newest set of players on the international scene will meet in Seoul, South Korea. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon places very high hopes on it.

  • Climate Change will be reviewed in Cancun, Mexico in a special "high-level" meeting; meanwhile "Sherpas" are trying their best to point out the shortcomings and differences.

  • The newly-appointed Executive Secretary of the U.N. Regional Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia (ESCWA) will take over November 1. With an impressive list of accomplishments, some feel she is overqualified for that post.
