The COVID-19 global health pandemic is rapidly changing the ways we live and work. In the age of sustainable development and at a time when the world is working towards achieving the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), this disease is complicating SDG implementation efforts as well as posing a real risk to achieving targets on communicable disease, education, life expectancy, and decent work. This virtual conference event will seek to examine the implications of COVID-19 for public health and the SDGs, as well as make recommendations on science-based responses.
On Monday, 30 March, join the UN Sustainable Development Solutions Network and a global panel of experts for a virtual conference on the epidemiology and economics of coronavirus.
