COVID-19 pandemic has brought upon unprecedented challenges globally, where even a full year later is still resurging in several countries. Even those not hit hard by the health crisis have been badly hit by the economic fallout from the pandemic. This risk setting back progress towards many of the SDGs by years and the less developed countries face the hardest adjustments.

For the coming year and more, countries will be trying to vaccinate a large share of their populations and to recover from the COVID-induced global recession, to make up lost ground and, in the case of the SDGs, make up for lost time in achieving the goals by 2030. The UN and other international organisations are spearheading a collaborative multilateral effort to address the immediate crisis, and mobilise resources for countries, especially less developed ones, to ‘build back better’ – that is, to recover from the economic shock as quickly as possible and in consistent with achieving the SDGs as well as the Paris Agreement targets.

Aligning with the above, 2020/21 Sustainable Development Transformation Forum (SDTF 2020/21) will focus on recovery pathways towards a just and sustainable economy, considering in depth how developing countries can seize the opportunities presented by COVID-19 and long-term decarbonization to launch or in some cases accelerate sustainable, low-carbon industrialization.

SDTF 2020/21 will take place virtually from 22-26 February 2021.
