In the lead up to the launch of Development2030 we will be running webinar sessions. The first session will be taking place on 3rd September 2021 at 2pm (UK) time.

The topic for this session is:

Achieving the UN SDGs, how has the pandemic impacted our progress

Achieving the SDGs in the face of reduced funding has become a challenge that requires collective action in both policy making and implementation. The global labour market has experienced massive unemployment, and growing inequities, that have resulted in the slowing of economic growth across the world.

In this webinar, we will approach this topic from a global perspective, and discuss how the pandemic has impacted our progress in achieving UNSDG8 (Decent Work & Economic Growth), UNSDG9 (Infrastructure & Innovation) and UNSDG10 (Reducing Inequalities) and discuss some approaches to finding solutions.
