Participants will debate solutions and policies to overcome the COVID-19 pandemic guided by the SDGs. They are expected to (a) exchange new ideas, expectations and priorities which should be explored further by the Council and the high-level political forum in the following months; and (b) shine the spotlight on forward-looking actions and partnerships by countries and all relevant stakeholders that can help recover from the pandemic and accelerate progress towards the 2030 Agenda.
The Partnership Forum will be held back-to-back with the Council’s new coordination segment that guides and coordinates the work of the UN and ECOSOC system, as decided by the General Assembly (A/RES/75/290A).
Expressions of interest to host side events are now being considered.
