Experts to chart way forward for Asia and Pacific to achieve SDGs and recover better from COVID-19

On Thursday, 15 July, experts from governments, the private sector and civil society will showcase ongoing pandemic recovery efforts and identify how countries can best target their strategies to build back better from the novel coronavirus and make progress towards the Sustainable Development Goals.

The event, to be hosted by ESCAP with the support of Fiji, Pakistan and the Philippines, is part of the High-level Political Forum on Sustainable Development. Discussions will be framed by the four-point recovery agenda presented in “Beyond the pandemic: Building back better from crises in Asia and the Pacific,” the theme study for the 77th session of the Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific. That agenda called on countries to focus on broadening social protection, invest in a sustained recovery, strengthen connectivity and supply chains, and mend the broken relationship with nature.
