Description: 
Closing remarks by Ms. Amina Mohammed, United Nations Deputy Secretary-General, at the High-level Event on Jobs and Social Protection for Poverty Eradication.The COVID-19 pandemic continues to serve as a harsh reminder of the perils stemming from global inequities and a reminder of the urgency to redouble efforts towards the achievement of the 2030 Agenda. The equivalent of an unprecedented 255 million jobs were lost due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This led to a sharp increase in poverty and inequalities. The High-Level event will include an opening segment followed by a policy discussion to frame the ambitions needed for a socio-economic recovery to advance decent job creation, social protection and poverty eradication. To achieve a human centered recovery, commitments are required from global leaders.
