The United Nations Sustainable Development Group has recently launched a coherent framework for UN’s urgent socio-economic support to countries and societies in the face of COVID-19, putting in practice the Secretary-General’s report on “Shared responsibility, global solidarity: Responding to the socio-economic impacts of COVID-19 ”. Moving beyond the initial response phase, the UN Secretary-General underlines the need for the world to “recover better” and that any recovery strategy should ensure that we collectively remain on track towards the longer-term objectives outlined in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. The report also underlines the importance of mobilizing partnerships with all stakeholders to accelerate the global response to COVID-19 and recovery from its impact.
In 2019, the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs (UN DESA), United Nations Office for Partnerships, United Nations Development Coordination Office, Global Compact, and The Partnering Initiative launched the 2030 Agenda Partnership Accelerator - a project aimed at significantly accelerating effective partnerships in support of the 2030 Agenda.
To advise the work of the 2030 Agenda Partnership Accelerator and ensure that it can be impactful in the recovery phase of the COVID-19 pandemic, the side event will explore how partnerships can help assist in particular developing countries to address the COVID-19 crisis and its aftermath and promote synergies between key sectors, including the scientific and technological community and the private sector.
