COVID-19 and SDGs

Aurora Brief Reviews No. 14 April 17 2020

April 2020

Although not an evidence-based report, the report Shared Responsibility, Global Solidarity published by the UN last month does deserve attention also at universities. While so many pointers are in the direction of a free-for-all and collapse of international collaboration, it is important to note that institutions like the United Nations – and the European Union for that matter – carry on with working for the common good.

The report calls for international collaboration, first in the immediate fight to curb the pandemic, but also look beyond immediate health concerns to the global impact on the social and economic conditions of the people on our plant as well as the way in which COVID-19 is connected to the various sustainable development goals.
