UN DESA Global Policy Dialogue Series: Technological and Science-based Solutions to the COVID-19 Challenge

29 October 2020
10:00 – 11:30 am EDT

UN DESA is inviting you for a conversation with global leaders in science and technology that will assess the science-based policies and innovations that have developed during the pandemic, identifying good practices as well as areas where work is still needed. The event will feature a broad panel discussion with experts, followed by regional breakout sessions led by UN DESA (English) and the UN Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia (Arabic).

The event will discuss: 

  • What are concrete examples of innovations that have helped people or institutions deal with the effects of COVID-19?
  • How can the international community help to ensure that research and innovations related to COVID-19 are accessible to all?
  • What needs to be done to better engage society, counter misinformation and overcome apathy towards science in policy-making?

The event will be streamed live on UN DESA’s Facebook page
