At the beginning of 2020, the global development community was gearing up to accelerate progress on the Sustainable Development Goals during a “decade of action” — but then the COVID-19 pandemic changed everything. Concerned that work on the SDGs could be derailed, development experts now say timely and accurate data will play a crucial role in resuming progress on the 2030 targets.
During an exclusive, virtual Newsmaker event co-hosted by Devex and SDSN TReNDS
, attendees will hear directly from two global development leaders — SDSN President Jeffrey Sachs and Francesca Perucci, chief of the Development Data and Outreach Branch at the United Nations Statistics Division — as they address the urgent need to redouble efforts on the SDGs and the role that data can play in not only tracking progress on the goals, but also ensuring urgent action where it is needed most.
