Forward-looking policies for a sustainable COVID-19 recovery

Description

H.E. Mr.  Edil Baisalov, Chair of the Regional Forum on Sustainable Development , Deputy Chairman of the Cabinet of Ministers of Kyrgyzstan 

The session will discuss forward-looking polices to promote a
sustainable recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic, based on the key
messages from the peer learning sessions on the SDGs under in-depth
review (4, 5, 14, 15, and 17).  

Particular attention will be given to policy coherence and addressing
trade-offs in SDG policies and COVID-19 recovery measures at regional,
subregional, national and local levels. In this context, experiences
from UNECE member States that have presented or will present Voluntary
National Review (VNRs) at the High-level Political Forum on Sustainable
Development will be discussed, with emphasis on VNRs as a means to
promote policy coherence and multi-level collaboration. Lessons from
Voluntary Local Reviews (VLRs) and from the regional and subregional
levels will also be considered.     

The session will feature a multi-stakeholder panel, composed of
two representatives from member States, a mayor and a representative of
civil society.
