Member States have mandated the Secretary-General and the UN System to help them achieve the standards set out in the UN Charter and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

Birth of the United Nations: When, Where and Why. The United Nations Charter was signed at a conference in San . The United Nations Charter was signed at a conference in San Francisco in June 1945, led by four countries: Britain, China, the Soviet Union and the United States. Why is that opening line notable? Because today, the United Nations can, to some, seem to serve the narrow national interests of its 193 member countries - especially the most powerful ones - and not ordinary citizens.

Global problems are the natural consequences of modern globalisation and unrestrained economic growth. They are the result of: irrational natural resource management; the expansive character of the current hydrocarbon-based economy; and the geopolitical standoff of superpowers possessing weapons of mass destruction. They are also caused by processes such as uncontrolled production, consumption, pollution, population growth, and pressure on the ecosystems.

Various international documents, such as the Kyoto Protocol (which extends the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change), have been developed on this basis. Today, there is a big risk of misunderstanding and underestimation of all the factors and the scale of influence of various cosmic and geological processes on the global climate change on Earth.
