World leaders will be back in New York this week as they address the world at the 77th session of the UN General Assembly.

It is the first time that those attending will convene in person since the Covid-19 pandemic led to most addresses being delivered by video link.

Numbers have been stripped back, with smaller delegations and fewer journalists given access.

The annual meeting will be held at the UN’s headquarters in New York and top officials will discuss the yearly agenda and global issues. The war in Ukraine is expected to dominate discussions, along with the rising cost of living globally and the energy crisis, both of which have been exacerbated by the war.

The UN’s 193-member states will be provided with a platform and 15 to 20 minutes to address the international community.

As is customary, Brazil's leader Jair Bolsonaro will make the famous first address on Tuesday to begin the proceedings. US President Joe Biden is due to make his address the following day, due to his attendance at the funeral of Queen Elizabeth II in London.

After that will be a quick succession of world leaders over the course of the following six days.
