CESR Contributes Proposals for Sharing Economic Benefits ahead of HLPF

CESR’s Kate Donald recently acted as an external expert for the UN’s thematic workstream on “Responding to the economic shock, relaunching growth, sharing economic benefits and addressing developing countries financing challenges” in preparation for the 2020 High-Level Political Forum on Sustainable Development. The final background paper, prepared with the inputs of several UN agencies as well as the external experts, can be found here. It explores how economic policy should be transformed to achieve the SDGs and a just recovery from COVID-19, including through greater distributional justice to reduce inequalities, realize economic and social rights, and prioritize care.
