The COVID-19 pandemic is disrupting the implementation and achievement of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. At the same time the pandemic serves as a strong wake-up call for the international community to build a more resilient, inclusive and sustainable future as summarised under the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
How can inclusive and sustainable industrial development support recovery and accelerate the transformation towards achieving the SDGs? What should countries consider in their approach to reaching the SDG targets? How do we monitor and assess progress in view of the challenges the world is facing right now?
Those are some of the key questions to be discussed at the online event organised by UNIDO in cooperation with the UN Sustainable Development Solutions Network (SDSN). The event will feature keynote remarks as well as a high-level panel discussion on the subject topic. UNIDO will also use the occasion to showcase its latest online data tool, the SDG-9 Industry Tracker, which is part of the newly launched UNIDO Industrial Analytics Platform (IAP).
