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 first session of the three-part webinar series will take place on 28th May (tbc) at 9:00 – 11:30 am (NY time) and it aims to discuss the challenges of forward-planning in a time of intersecting crises. Practitioners and thought leaders will offer their reflections on the role of climate & SDG synergies in pandemic recovery. A panel of experts & practitioners will speak to the practical measures and examples that stakeholders can draw on to better account for trade-offs and harness synergies in their recovery plans and strategies.
