Linking SDGs and green inclusive recovery post COVID-19 : measuring progress for better implementation


07 Oct 2020 11:00 to 12:15





Event Description

The COVID-19 crisis has highlighted only too well that governments need to move rapidly and use the SDGs to tackle many pressing problems that are now too urgent to ignore. These include the rising frequency of  destructive climate change-related events, such as extreme weather, flooding and drought, the impacts of increasing natural capital destruction and species extinction. They also include interconnected issues of worsening inequality and the growing difficulties for many in earning a living through work that is becoming more precarious and insecure. The defining challenge of the next decade will be building the systems that the SDGs need for delivery. From the practicalities of achieving SDG-related policy coherence across different parts of government, to validating new data sources and establishing agreed-upon metrics where gaps exist, making delivery a reality requires genuine and ongoing commitment.

As part of the EU Sustainable Development week, Eva Lindström, Member of the European Court of Auditors, and ACCA (the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants) are thus delighted to invite you to a lively discussion on linking SDGs and green inclusive recovery post COVID-19 : measuring progress for better implementation.
