WHAT WE DO NOW
"... [COVID-19] has exposed the fragility of our societies and economies to shocks, and it has laid bare deep inequalities... Everything we do during and after this crisis must be with a strong focus on building more equal, inclusive and sustainable economies and societies that are more resilient in the face of pandemics, climate change, and the many other global challenges we face’"
