The current health crisis hits the poor the hardest: they are not only more likely to be affected by the virus but also by measures taken by States as a response to the crisis. The disproportionate impacts of the pandemic are not only linked to inequalities within countries, but also between countries globally and regionally. More than ever, we need policy coherence in compliance with human rights and in attaining the core principle of “leaving no one behind.” The event’s main objective is to reflect on concrete country experiences, linking sustainable development, climate policies, and human rights compliance.
