Breakout session | Stage 2
People and our planet face multiple and increasingly complex threats. Vulnerable communities in the poorest countries must navigate an assault course of interrelated threats – exacerbated by the Covid-19 pandemic. From environmental degradation including climate change, increasing economic and financial instability, to the increasing spread of organised crime and conflict, pandemics and antibiotic resistance. These are creating a complex risk landscape that development actors and governments must be better equipped to navigate, if we are to deliver on the SDGs.
Achieving sustainable development requires taking account of these complex risks and moving away from single hazard responses to more systems approach that builds multi- shock resilience. This event will explore risks vulnerable populations face, their transboundary nature and how to build resilience.
