Theme: "Building back better from the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) while advancing the full implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development".
  1. Introduction of SG reports on the theme of HLPF and ECOSOC and on scenarios and long-term impact of current trends on the SDGs Report of the Committee on Development Policy.
  2. Future proofing multilateralism for a resilient and inclusive recovery - What have we learned about multilateralism from COVID-19? How can we best support multilateralism and international cooperation for building back better? How can multilateral collaboration be reimagined to be more effective in the future? What are the key reforms needed in multilateral institutions that would allow for adequate representation of developing countries in international institutions? 
The High-Level meeting will provide a space for ECOSOC to discuss, at the ministerial level, how to best develop forward-looking policy approaches to building back better and put the world back on track to implement the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development while advancing a more inclusive and networked multilateralism. It will aim to discuss how to balance short-term crisis relief with long-term analysis, planning and thinking.
