The COVID-19 crisis pandemic has underscored the world’s fragilities, which extend far beyond the realm of global health. Disproportionately impacting communities and countries already in precarious circumstances, it has exposed the deep inequalities in societies and economies with attendant gaps in social protection systems. In many cases, such inequality and exclusion has contributed to pent-up grievances and social instability. Recovery is an opportunity to address inequality, exclusion, gaps in social protection systems, the climate crisis and the many other fragilities and injustices that have been exposed. Instead of going back to unsustainable systems and approaches, we need to transition to decent jobs, renewable energy, sustainable food systems, gender equality, stronger social safety nets, universal health coverage – and an international system that can deliver effectively.
