ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan will offer a keynote presentation at the United Nations High Level Political Forum on Sustainable Development on Tuesday, outlining his vision for addressing the economic challenges posed by COVID-19 and climate change.
The prime minister will lay out his strategy for dealing with the triple threat that the world faces today: the COVID-19 pandemic, economic reversal, and the existential threat posed by climate change.
He will also make recommendations for national and international actions that should be taken in order to “build back better.”
The High-Level Political Forum (HLPF) is the premier forum for reviewing the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and its 17 sustainable development goals (SDGs).
The topic of the 2021 HLPF is ensuring a long-term and resilient recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic, which will put countries on track to meet the 2030 Agenda and SDGs.
Every year, the HLPF is held under the auspices of the United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC), which is currently chaired by Ambassador Munir Akram, Pakistan’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations in New York.
PM Imran Khan has addressed this issue at numerous international fora on a regular basis and has made several practical proposals, many of which are currently being implemented.
The meeting will go over the policies that have been put in place so far to deal with the pandemic and its consequences.
In the light of the ongoing crisis, several other nations will also deliver their Voluntary National Reviews on the implementation of the 2030 Agenda at the Forum.
The HLPF will adopt a ministerial declaration with recommendations on how to address COVID-19’s effects while undergoing the necessary transformations to achieve a more sustainable and inclusive economy, build robust and universal healthcare and social protection systems, and protect the environment.
