Global Cooperation for Crisis Response



UN Partner

Offered by

United Nations Global Compact Academy

As the United Nations marks its 75th anniversary this year, it faces an unprecedented global crisis: the COVID-19 pandemic is devastating communities and economies around the world, while support for global cooperation continues to diminish.

The COVID-19 crisis underlines the need for strong institutions, multilateralism and global partnerships. The world must come together around the shared goal of beating this pandemic, and we need bold leadership at both the national and global level to urgently combat the crisis and work towards a more just and sustainable future.
