Leaving no one behind: impact of COVID-19 on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)

This groundbreaking research considers impact of COVID-19 on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) using futures modeling in three potential recovery scenarios, capturing the multidimensional effects of the pandemic over the next decade. The studies find that while the social and economic impacts of COVID-19 are set to widen the gap between people living in rich and poor countries, countries on the lower end of human development can exceed pre-COVID development trajectories, through a combination of bold policy choices and investments in governance, social protection, green economy and digitalization (an ‘SDG Push’).
