The integrated nature of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development poses special challenges for policy-makers worldwide, especially in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. It has been widely noted that prior to this crisis, the world was already falling behind in its efforts to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the commitment to ‘leave no one behind’. Now with COVID-19, reaching these goals is an even greater challenge.
The panel will be discussing the likely impacts, focusing particularly on the role of synergies between the COVID-19 response and the Global Goals. We also explore the trade-offs that will occur and potential mitigating mechanisms so that global efforts on achieving the SDGs are not hindered.
