CURACAO (WILLEMSTAD) - Under the title “Socioeconomic effects of COVID-19 in the frame of the SDGs”, the global association of Socioeconomic Advisory Councils and Similar Institutions (AICESIS) is organizing an international webinar on Wednesday, September 16, 2020. During this webinar, in which the socio-economic effects of the COVID-19 crisis within the framework of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) will be discussed, knowledge sharing and experience exchange will be central.
Although the global context has changed radically as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, the United Nations (UN) Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the Paris Climate Change Agreement and respect for human rights are more relevant than ever. The regions affiliated to AICESIS will elaborate on this during the webinar and will indicate how they are trying to respond to the Building Back Better call of the UN, especially in a time of crisis where international cooperation is under pressure.
During the webinar SER Curaçao will speak on behalf of the Latin America and Caribbean region. It will indicate that current efforts should focus on inclusive and sustainable economies and societies that are more resilient to future pandemics, economic crises, climate change and other threats and global challenges.
The webinar will be organized in collaboration with the UN Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC), the Association of Economic and Social Councils of Africa (UCESA) and the Association of Economic and Social Advisory Bodies and Similar Institutions of the Francophonie (UCESIF).
