Data for the Climate and SDGs
As the think tank of the United Nations, the Department of Economic and Social Affairs (UN DESA) demonstrated its thought leadership in 2020 by providing agile support to member states as they battled the devastating economic and social impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. UN DESA’s experts oriented their intergovernmental support, as well as their analytical and capacity development work to provide stakeholders with the data, policy recommendations, and other tools needed to respond quickly and effectively to the challenges before them and achieve the Sustainable Development Goals.
Now, UN DESA’s experts on economic, social, and environmental issues will share their experiences and predictions for the year ahead and take questions from the audience in two fireside chat events. Two separate sessions in one week will offer a rare insider’s glimpse into the work at the heart of sustainable development.
