The COVID-19 pandemic has pushed millions into poverty due to loss of income and livelihoods and amplified many vulnerabilities worldwide. The impact and implication of the Covid 19 and other confounding factors have resulted in regression on Goal1(end poverty), Goal 5(gender equality and women empowerment) and Goal 8(decent work and inclusive growth and Goal 16(inclusive and peaceful societies). In Uganda, it is showing cracks on the national fault lines and resulting in massive social unrest as a result for having not responded urgently to the opportunities and challenges posed by the pandemic. African Monitor and the Youth Coalition for SDGs would like to use the Global Week to bring together various stakeholders (between government business, labour, and civil society.) in the SDGs Implementation in a Turning Point Dialogue to develop a shared understanding and develop a common pathway for accelerated delivery on SDGs in Uganda.
