WHEN: WEDNESDAY, 22 JULY 2020; 9-10:20 a.m. EDT (4-5.30 a.m. Irish Standard Time)
Join UN Department of Economic and Social Affairs (DESA) and the United Nations High-level Advisory Board on Economic and Social Affairs (HLAB) on 22 July 2020 for the launch of the Board’s new volume, “Recover Better: Economic and Social Challenges and Opportunities.” This online dialogue aims to answer these questions:
- Are we in a recession?
- What should countries do to recover better?
- Is a green recovery possible?
The essay compilation “Recover Better” reflects and furthers the discussions HLAB members have had on a wide range of development trends and issues of critical importance to the achievement of the SDGs and the recovery from COVID-19. The insights compiled in the edited volume could help to accelerate action, which is particularly important given that the window of opportunity for attaining the SDGs is closing quickly.
