Background
Launched in 2019, Tales Be Told quickly became a UNN ‘best-seller’, prompting many countries to come forward with their stories. This second edition is structured according to four themes: (1) UNN people; (2) UNN capacity strengthening; (3) UNN programming and partnerships; and (4) UNN analytics. COVID-19 is inevitably a common thread, given the large mark it has made worldwide over the last year. While the ‘tales’ are presented here as a complete set, they can also be read on an individual basis, depending upon the areas that interest readers most.
 

Enjoy reading these 22 new and inspiring country stories!
