The webinar is part of the Harnessing Climate & SDGs Synergies to Recover Better and Stronger from the Covid-19 Pandemic global virtual consultation process, taking place instead of the Climate and SDGs Synergies Conference 2020 organized by UN DESA.

The second session of the three-part webinar series will take place on Thursday, 11 June, 10AM-12 noon (NY time) and will focus on the trends and thematic opportunities that countries can tap to realize “quick wins” and lay the ground for climate & SDG co-benefits. Using examples, speakers will suggest the policies, stimulus & financing measures needed to enable a better & faster recovery to Covid-19, by accelerating just transitions to sustainable development that leave no one behind.

  • How can stimulus & recovery measures be designed to improve lives now; and maximize climate & SDG co-benefits over a longer term?
  • What measures hold the most potential for impact?
  • What emerging shifts in human behavior, markets and finance offer opportunities?
  • What is being done to enable green, inclusive recovery in low-income countries? What action is needed? How can Paris Agreement and SDG processes be leveraged?

You can share your insights & initiatives in the UN DESA online synergies-in-practice questionnaire.
