Half the World: The Many Faces of Social Protection
Tuesday, 14 July 2020
8:00 AM - 9:00 AM
Virtual (New York time)

Side Event

Organiser: UNDP with high-level contributions from Member States and Academia

COVID-19 has condensed the experience of a slow, cumulative sustainability crisis into a sudden health emergency, revealing the full extent of human vulnerability. It has the potential to shift incentives – to lift the financial, institutional and political constraints that have kept the SDGs off-track, and thus to accelerate action for sustainable development. The event will highlight efforts to address the socio-economic impact of COVID-19, with the SDGs as our compass. Top speakers from governments, think tanks and UN will present latest data and showcase examples of digital tools, social protection and green recovery.
