About the Webinar
The global COVID-19 pandemic is plunging the world into a socioeconomic and financial crisis of an unprecedented scale, in addition to the acute health crisis. Many of the gains achieved under the banner of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are under threat. The crisis has exposed and exacerbated vulnerabilities and inequalities in both developing and developed countries, deepening poverty and exclusion and pushing the most vulnerable even further behind.
This is a watershed moment. A sustainable, equitable and peaceful future hinges on the right national and international policy decisions. The main agenda through this discussion would be to see what role does the institutions such as the United Nations, International Monetary Fund, World Bank and others have performed in order to protect the vulnerable countries from the pandemic’s effect.
