Opportunities in the Americas and the Caribbean beyond the 2020 global emergency. July 22 and 30, 2020

The imminent and disruptive changes in the different social, economic and structural aspects in general, can be an opportunity to propose solutions to actively advance in sustainable development, considering the eyes of governments, civil society, the private sector, academia, among others, with an emphasis on the SDGs of the 2030 Agenda. 

The rapid, strong and global impact of the current outbreak of COVID-19, is leading to a deep reflection on the Society that should emerge after the pandemic, which possibly will be crossed transversally by topics such as: the care of biodiversity, the environment, energy, technology, innovation, consumption patterns, new forms of work, the operation of the supply chain, the conditions of people’s mobility and a necessarily new form of relationship within societies and between these. Within the last one mentioned, clearly gender issues play and will play a central role.

The rapid, strong and global impact of the current outbreak of COVID-19, is leading to a deep reflection on the Society that should emerge after the pandemic, which possibly will be crossed transversally by topics such as: the care of biodiversity, the environment, energy, technology, innovation, consumption patterns, new forms of work, the operation of the supply chain, the conditions of people’s mobility and a necessarily new form of relationship within societies and between these. Within the last one mentioned, clearly gender issues play and will play a central role. 

One of the key aspects is to understand how digital is changing the industry and development agendas in the region, and how social and gender gaps are being included in the discussion. On the one hand, in the labor market, changes are taking place and there is uncertainty about the impact of the digitization of certain activities. On the other hand, digital agendas in the region have had a strong focus on infrastructure and changes in the industry. It is worth asking how social and labor inclusion has been addressed from these public policy tools. 

This Forum aims to open a space for dialogue between different actors on this situation, having a first approach to issues, such as, the economic and social impact of the outbreak, new technologies and their role in a new way of seeing Society, work, the role of ports and maritime transport, which must be rethought. Presentations will include a gender vision as part of addressing the issues raised.
