UN officer stresses importance of the family

Family minded people often complain, with reason, about the United Nations approach to family issues. Watch this video, though, and listen to a UN officer who seems to hit all the right notes.
Renata Kaczmarska is a focal point for the United Nations Programme on the Family,  which is part of the Division for Social Policy and Development, Department of
Economic and Social Affairs, United Nations Secretariat. Quite a mouthful.
Ms Kaczmarska was invited to Spain by the International Federation for Family Development (IFFD) and The Family Watch to speak about the priorities of the UN body leading up to the 20th anniversary of the UN Year of the Family. They are:
(a) poverty eradication: confronting family poverty and social exclusion
(b) full employment and decent work: ensuring work-family balance
(c) social integration: advancing social integration and intergenerational solidarity
The video interview will give you an idea of some pro-family initiatives taken in different countries.
