As we enter 2022, the Pandemic continues to take its devastating toll across the world, heightened by the ongoing climate emergency, exacerbating existing inequalities- spatial as well as between women and men, age groups and other population groups. Only two years into the Decade of Action to deliver on the Sustainable Development Goals, the COVID-19 pandemic, threatens to unravel decades of development gains, but also serve as a catalyst for human rights violations globally.

In this context, re-emphasizing the social contract between rights-holders and duty-bearers, through a recovery strategy based on human rights, the 2030 Agenda and the Paris Agreement, is essential.

The upcoming Human Rights Council intersessional meeting on the 2030 Agenda and Human rights on January 18th 2022 will be an important opportunity to reaffirm the Sustainable Recovery Pledge and take stock of commitmentsAt the event State and non-state actors will be invited to reflect on developments, good practices and lessons learned.

The pledge has been signed by 49 states and supported by 27 organizations, together representing a diverse range of actors (find the pledge, signatories and supporters here).

The event will be in English and there will be simultaneous interpretation to Spanish and French. The recording of the event will be publicly available.
