The Epidemiology and Economics of Coronavirus

The COVID-19 global health pandemic is rapidly changing the ways we live and work. In the age of sustainable development and at a time when the world is working towards achieving the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), this disease is complicating SDG implementation efforts as well as posing a real risk to achieving targets on communicable disease, education, life expectancy, and decent work. This virtual conference event will seek to examine the implications of COVID-19 for public health and the SDGs, as well as make recommendations on science-based responses.

The UN Sustainable Development Solutions Network (SDSN) was established in 2012 under the auspices of the UNSecretary-General. SDSN mobilizes global scientific and technological expertise to promote practical solutions forsustainable development, including the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals and the Paris Climate Agreement through education, research, policy analysis, and global cooperation. SDSN works closely with UnitedNations agencies, multilateral financing institutions, the private sector, and civil society.
