9 October 2017

Listen to our daily bulletin of news and features from the United Nations, presented by Dianne Penn and Matt Wells.

In today’s programme: A “sweeping transformation” is needed in the African countryside to alleviate poverty, and cope with increasing urbanization, says a major new report; and: Cuba’s first ever national music strategy aims to export its vibrant song culture to the world, and create new jobs along the way.  We’ll hear from the UN official helping orchestrate it all.
