2017 in Photos
Secretary-General António Guterres began his tenure at the start of January, as we commenced a year that saw a continuation of many of the flashpoints and fault lines of 2016: continued conflict, escalating tensions, refugee and humanitarian crises spurred on by conflict and drought. The year brought with it many natural disasters, in the form of hurricanes, earthquakes, monsoons, landslides, and fires. To be sure, 2017 was a trying year, highlighting time and again how the work of the United Nations is as vital now as ever.
