UNGA 76 will meet against a challenging backdrop—the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the planning of Build Forward Better, a growing discussion on the value of multilateralism, the need to make global governance more effective, unfolding UN reforms, the urgency of responding to climate change, the definition of new biodiversity targets, insufficient progress towards the SDGs...

Join María Fernanda Espinosa (former Minister of Foreign Affairs, Ecuador, and former President, UN General Assembly 73rd Regular Session), Javier Surasky (Program Officer, CEPEI), and Lynn Wagner (Senior Director, Tracking Progress, IISD) as they take your questions, prompt discussion, and offer their expert insights on what to expect as the nations of the world meet.
