Riding out the multicrisis

Friday 11 november 2022 11:30 - 12:30

In an era of emergency and uncertainty, the world is going through compounded and multifold crises, from worsening climate change, successive Covid-19 waves, deepening inequalities to new and lasting geopolitical conflicts of global consequences. The fight against global warming, race to reach the SDGs, efforts to strengthen health systems, economic cooperation as well as the common custody of global public goods or global commons had already taken a serious hit during the pandemic. This year, much of the world has also been affected by the fallout of the conflict in Ukraine, from the dramatic humanitarian crisis to surging inflation, grave food and energy insecurity worldwide, as well as economic and political disruptions. This session will feature a high-level discussion on immediate priorities to mitigate the multiple shocks and socio-economic aftermath of these crises and their ongoing consequences, and longer-term goals to foster a renewed cooperative world order and more effective global governance, capable of anticipating and facing future crises.
