In times of crises, international organizations, the public and private sector share a common desire to overcome in a swift manner the hardships that come with them. Bearing in mind the climate crisis, and more recently the COVID-19 pandemic, global actors use the power that multilateralism has in order to bring stakeholders at the same table and find viable solutions. With a rule based international order in mind, cooperation between the aforementioned is crucial in tackling current crises and in addressing the 2030 Agenda and its implementation on all levels. Cross country partnerships and the establishment of networks hold the power to overcome multiple crises. The COVID-19 pandemic has changed the way we deal with situations and not only, but ultimately it has brought to light the capacity we hold, as a humanity, to adapt to unforeseen contexts. The monitoring of the 2030 Agenda gives us the power to efficiently asses its implementation, thus actively tracking the structural changes it creates.

This event aims to corroborate optimal data and entertain fruitful debates and discussion on the policies developed so far in implementing the 17 SDGs. One year into the Decade of Action, states, companies, international organizations and other actors must work together in bridging their strategies to achieve the 17 sustainable development goals. Only through full transparency and active cooperation, the common goal will be met. The time is now.
