It Takes a Global Crisis: Episode 0 - Introduction
Did it take a global crisis like the COVID-19 pandemic for us to see the challenges to reaching Agenda 2030? To set in motion solutions for sustainable development for all? Welcome to 'It Takes a Global Crisis', a series of four special episodes produced by the UN Library & Archives Geneva in collaboration with the SDG Lab.
In this introductory episode, we're joined by Nadia Isler, Director of the SDG Lab and Francesco Pisano, the Director of the Library & Archives, to explore how the COVID-19 pandemic has in many ways accelerated sustainable development solutions, but also highlighted the challenges, gaps, and limitations of progress.
Throughout the series, we'll be talking to a range of experts and practitioners--as they work both on the ground and in advancing policy--about their experiences across the themes of digitalization and connectivity, the environment as a key to social resilience, social protection and sustainable cities.
So, did it take a global crisis?
