It Takes a Global Crisis: Episode 2 - Environment and Social Resilience
Welcome to Episode 2 of '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 episode we look at the environment and social resilience.
We're joined by David Smith, Chief Economist and Regional Coordinator of UNDP-UNEP Poverty-Environment Action for the SDGs (PEA), UNEP Africa Office, and Akanksha Khatri, Head of the Nature Action Agenda, World Economic Forum (WEF). Together with host Edward Mishaud, they explore how COVID-19 has shed new light on our understanding of society's critical link with the environment. They discuss the link between economic growth and environmental sustainability, and what needs to change to meet the Sustainable Development Goals.
So, did it take a global crisis to realize our own health is linked to the health of our planet?
