Across the world, the COVID-19 crisis has dramatically revealed our systemic vulnerabilities, exposing the fragility of human life, our economies, supply chains, social welfare systems and institutions. The way we respond to this crisis will be decisive in delivering the transformations required to achieve the SDGs in the decade ahead. In an interactive online session co-hosted by the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD) and the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs (UNDESA) with focus on navigating business risks and opportunities in a post COVID-19 world, leaders from business, government and the United Nations exchanged views on the lessons learned, highlighted transformative solutions, and discussed how to build collaborative synergies around the new normal we want. You can access recordings and key takeaways from the Chief Sustainability Officers for SDGs event below:
