Reimagining Tourism in Post-pandemic Small Island Developing States (SIDS)

This interactive discussion will focus on building forward tourism in SIDS better, greener and bluer.

Sep 01, 16:00 to Sep 01, 17:30
United States of America | Ny
The Alliance of Small Island States, UN Foundation, and UNDP
The tourism sector accounts for more than 30 percent of total exports in many SIDS. As a result of the lockdowns and travel restrictions put in place due to the COVID-19 pandemic, international tourism is plummeting. UNWTO estimates that international arrivals in SIDS globally dropped 47 percent from January to April, in the month of April arrivals dropped by 97 percent. This shock is having major direct and indirect impacts for livelihoods in SIDS, impacting on foreign exchange earnings, employment and wages and tax revenues furthermore many MSMEs rely heavily on revenue from tourism. As an important source of employment, the sharp decline in tourism in SIDS is increasing precarity, putting especially informal workers at risk many of whom are women. This interactive discussion will focus on building forward tourism in SIDS better, greener and bluer. It will bring together key experts to discuss how SIDS can advance the environmental, economic and socio-cultural sustainability of their tourism sectors promoting the industry as a driver towards realizing ambitions of the SAMOA Pathway and the Decade of Action post COVID-19.

We have to confront the current reality with candor: SDG progress has now stopped. In this report, we track 18 indicators included in the United Nations’ SDGs. In recent years, the world has improved on every single one. This year, on the vast majority, we’ve regressed.

The Global Network’s key partners will hold a side event at the 75th session of the General Assembly of the United Nations to update the Member States and all concerned stakeholders on latest evidence on the situation in countries affected by food crises under the COVID-19 pandemic, and trigger a collective discussion on concrete actions Member States can take to address food crises in a coordinated manner.

The 2020 Global Report on Food Crises showed an already dire picture of global acute food insecurity and malnutrition – even before the COVID-19 disease’s spread began to impact food systems. Alongside the report, the Global Network’s partners carried out the campaign on “Food Crises and COVID-19” and delivered key messages on their commitment, the way forward and priority actions to address the worsening food crises, which are now being compounded by the COVID-19, the on-going locust plague and other risk factors, and to protect and strengthen food systems in the post-pandemic world.

On Wednesday, September 16, from 1:00-2:30 PM EDT, the Brookings Institution and the UN Foundation will cohost American Leadership in Advancing the Sustainable Development Goals, a high-level virtual event to showcase the power of the SDGs in the United States.

The devastating health and economic impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic have exposed and exacerbated stark inequalities and vulnerabilities in the United States. At the same time, protests sparked by the tragic killing of George Floyd have put the spotlight on America’s long history of racial injustice. The commitment to equity, justice, and environmental preservation reflected in the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) is more critical today than ever – a foundation to respond to these crises and to build a future that leaves no one behind. Building off a successful first gathering last year on the margins of the UN General Assembly, this event will showcase local innovation, leadership, actions, and commitments from all parts of the American society, including cities, businesses, universities, philanthropy, and youth activists. Their leadership is crucial to a recovery that advances equity and sustainability here at home and provides a fundamental basis for U.S. credibility and leadership abroad on the defining issues of our day.

We have seen bold actions recently of human compassion, local communities protecting refugees, food and farm activists transforming urban farming, advancing local alternatives to clean energy and water, and local movements driving global change. How can we adopt this mindset into our work as young leaders to transform the world and achieve the SDGs by 2030?

COVID-19 and Building Back Responsibly

The impact of Covid-19 has been unprecedented, not just in the tragic impact on lives, or the disproportional impact it has had on the most disadvantaged communities, but also in terms of what we have seen can be achieved.

The impact of Covid-19 has been unprecedented, not just in the tragic impact on lives, or the disproportional impact it has had on the most disadvantaged communities, but also in terms of what we have seen can be achieved. As lockdown restrictions ease and we all negotiate living in a ‘new normal’ we must not lose the opportunity to understand what factors made change happen at a pace previously unimaginable, and apply this to address the underlying inequalities and climate challenges that existed before Covid-19 that it has so dramatically highlighted. To drive this, Business in the Community has spent the last month in conversation with over 100 business leaders and a further 500 practitioners and partners to understand what Covid-19 has taught us about how we could turn ambitions into action. Now is our moment to not simply slip back to a new normal, seeing the last few months as a series of heroic acts, but instead to seize the opportunity to accelerate action. Join us to hear and share your thoughts with a diverse panel of business game changers on their experiences and reflections, and how they plan to take these actions forward in their businesses to Build Back Responsibly.

This roundtable is part of a series of virtual events, which Business in the Community (BITC) is running to elevate the conversation and drive action on how business can Build Back Responsibly.

Over the last month, we have been in conversation with over 100 business leaders and a further 500 practitioners and partners, to understand what Covid-19 has taught us about how we could turn ambitions into action. Now is our moment to not simply slip back to a new normal, seeing the last few months as a series of heroic acts, but instead to seize the opportunity to accelerate action. So to coincide with this year’s United Nations General Assembly week, we will be bringing together influential business leaders across our network to create faster, bolder, bigger action.

From Global Vision to Local Action: Connecting Waste-Pickers in Ghana to a Global Marketplace for Plastic

Ghana is one of many countries where a vibrant ecosystem of waste pickers is critical to keeping the country clean, but where the system operates “below the radar,” limiting pickers’ capacity to connect to potential buyers and recyclers. As part of the World Economic Forum’s Global Plastic Action Partnership (GPAP), an innovative pilot project is bringing together the Government of Ghana, SAP and other GPAP partners to leverage IT to create transparency in the value chain, ensure pickers earn fairer wages, and ensure that companies and consumers know when they are accessing premium “social plastics” to better protect communities and the environment. This session will focus on how to initiate and implement innovative solutions in local communities and foster discussions on what corporate, government and NGO partnerships need to do to have true global impact.

Business in the Community
This webinar marks the launch of Business in the Community’s Responsible Innovation methodology, including a panel of expert innovators. Every company is innovating daily just to stay ahead, and even more so as we look to recover from the COVID-19 pandemic. But to what extent are the impacts of these innovations on our communities and environment considered? This year has seen Business in the Community develop and pilot a new approach to responsible innovation, which enables innovators to identify and mitigate unintended consequences and capitalize on opportunities to support our communities, protect our environment and meet the Global Goals. Responsible innovation has been shown to reduce risk and bring cost reductions, improved brand value, increased resilience, enhanced employee, customer and supplier relationships, and ultimately, more innovation. By joining this webinar, you will receive the tools needed to put the Responsible Innovation Framework into practice within your businesses. There will also be opportunities to collaborate and innovate responsibly together.

COVID-19 and Education: The largest disruption in the history of education

To be held at the margins of the 75th Session of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA), this panel will consider the community of nations’ collective response to the pandemic and its associated financial, economic, and social repercussions worldwide.

COVID-19 is no longer just a health crisis. It has led to nationwide school closures in more than 100 countries, impacting over 860 million children and youth. The pandemic is also leading to global questioning and distrust in state institutions, specifically the educational ones, as never before has education been disrupted at this scale. This crisis should serve as a catalyst to support transformative changes in education and a greater shared sense of global responsibility.

To be held at the margins of the 75th Session of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA), this panel will consider the community of nations’ collective response to the pandemic and its associated financial, economic, and social repercussions worldwide. With the goal of improved responses to future crises, especially by global and regional institutions, it will seek answers to difficult questions, such as:

Is the ongoing pandemic an opportunity to rethink and revitalize our global education model?
Rigid curriculum and exams are all a byproduct of convenience and the scaling of education. With the pandemic, education has become more flexible and more inconvenient at the same time. Are leaders in education ready to embrace this change?
How can COVID-19 trigger a more effective and meaningful mindset shift in the way we approach education in our communities?
How can we regain the trust and decrease the gap of expectations between communities and educational institutions?

Multilateralism Reimagined: Towards a UN and multilateral system that is more democratic, rules-based and inclusive

Through a multi-stakeholder discussion with the private sector, academia, the UN, youth and civil society, speakers will explore ideas and thoughts on how these stakeholders can participate in and reshape the multilateral system to deliver better on the SDGs.

As the world is fighting the COVID-19 pandemic, we see heightened global insecurity and anxiety. International cooperation is under severe strain due to heightened geopolitical tensions and rivalry. The rules-based order upon which the UN Charter was conceived is being challenged. Our UN, and the multilateral system more broadly, needs to answer to the real anxieties of people with practical responses.

To solve the global challenges of our times – from COVID-19 to climate change, raging conflicts and unchecked technological advances – we need more inclusive international cooperation rather than a regression to narrow nationalism. The SDGs are our common road map for the future we want. To realize the 17 SDGs we need stronger partnerships and deeper involvement from civil society, the private sector, trade unions, local governments and other relevant stakeholders. This message emerged loud and clear from the UN75 global consultation.

Through a multi-stakeholder discussion with the private sector, academia, the UN, youth and civil society, speakers will explore ideas and thoughts on how these stakeholders can participate in and reshape the multilateral system to deliver better on the SDGs.

Now in its fifth year, the SDG Business Forum will showcase companies that are using their influence to lead the recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic. Through panels and keynotes, the SDG Business Forum will examine a new form of leadership that has emerged during this crisis – a generation of executives and rising professionals who understand that there are no successful businesses in a failing world. In this context, the private sector – in partnership with governments and civil society leaders – is leveraging the framework of the SDGs to respond to immediate threats in their communities and remedy three critical fragilities which have been exposed by events of 2020: climate change and nature loss; social inequality; and economic exclusion.

A webinar and in-person series featuring perspectives from current and former policymakers, in addition to senior think tank and practitioner representatives with valuable policy insights, by CFA Society New York, sponsored by CFA Institute, and presented in partnership with the Foreign Policy Association.

Global Policymakers Series (GPS) is a collection of exclusive events that convene current and former policymakers, in addition to senior think tank representatives with valuable policy insights, for technical discussions concerning the impact of regulatory, multilateral, fiscal and monetary policies on financial markets and the global economy. GPS launched in June 2020 owing to the critical role policy decisions were playing on investment performance in light of COVID-19.

Monetary and fiscal policy response were taken to unprecedented levels during the Great Recession. The policy response to the financial stresses brought by COVID-19 is likely to exceed the response during the Great Recession. Longer-term, global public pension underfunding, increasing sovereign debt levels, entitlement underfunding and the risks presented to some sectors by technological innovations may require even larger policy responses. GPS will dig deep into these topics and go well beyond the headlines and political noise that obscure real debate and analysis.

We know that the business-as-usual model of how we produce and consume virtually everything – from food, water, medicine, fiber – is unsustainable, and has created our planetary emergency. We need new stories to guide us toward a new normal. The UNDP-led Equator Initiative is a partnership that recognizes and shines a spotlight on new stories that embody the future we need – on local, nature-based solutions that help achieve multiple sustainable development goals. In this session, ten winners will receive the Equator Prize. The celebration will feature remarks by decision makers, celebrities, and the winners themselves along with videos and music.

Calculating the Cure: AI and COVID-19

A discussion on how to use artificial intelligence (AI) and bioinformatics to find candidate drugs for repurposing to meet the challenges of Covid-19.

A discussion on how to use artificial intelligence (AI) and bioinformatics to find candidate drugs for repurposing to meet the challenges of Covid-19. Identifying existing drugs currently on the market to treat a variety of conditions that could also be used to treat COVID-19 offers an opportunity to quickly meet an urgent need, since existing drugs have already completed extensive trials and are available in the market.

Quickly knowing which drugs could be effective in the fight against COVID-19, and what side effects could be expected, is vital, but the number of drugs on the market is vast. This discussion examines the role AI and bioinformatics can play in finding rapid solutions to a rapidly spreading healthcare crisis.
