The Commission for Social Development concluded its sixtieth session today, forwarding three texts to the Economic and Social Council, including a draft resolution focused on an inclusive and resilient recovery from COVID-19 and the eradication of poverty and hunger to achieve the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, this year’s priority theme.
The Commission for Social Development resumed its general discussion in virtual format today, with representatives of Government and civil society responding to this year’s theme — addressing food insecurity and eradicating poverty, including through the promotion of sustainable food systems — by highlighting national programmes for a resilient post-pandemic recovery and identifying structural gaps and impediments to overcome.
With the COVID-19 pandemic casting a pall over the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, delegates in the Commission for Social Development called for greater international cooperation today, highlighting national efforts towards resilient inclusive recovery and growth.
The Commission for Social Development held a multi-stakeholder forum today, with panellists who — as leaders of a trade union, farmers association, cooperative alliance, cultural movement and efforts to end violence against women — offered fresh ideas for fixing the broken protection systems that have left the most vulnerable most exposed to deepened hunger and poverty generated by the pandemic.
The Commission for Social Development continued its 2022 session today, seeking ideas from Governments and United Nations experts alike about the best ways to combat poverty and hunger and — in the pandemic’s third year — get back on track to achieving the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
