In 2015, all 193 member-states of the United Nations voted to adopt the UN Sustainable Development Goals. These 17 goals were described by former UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon as “a roadmap to ending global poverty, building a life of dignity for all and leaving no one behind.”
But with the global spread of Covid-19, the UN is addressing a unique humanitarian crisis while adapting its responses to the existing SDGs.
This panel of experts will examine the UN’s efforts with a special focus on employment and labor protection issues.
"The UN Sustainable Development Goals During Coronavirus" is part of the virtual discussion series Global Fragility and Pandemic: Insight from Asia and Notre Dame, a collaboration between the Liu Institute and Notre Dame International. Read about the series here.
This panel discussion will be held through a Zoom webinar. It will be held at 8:30 p.m. China Standard time.
