UNCTAD contributed to the organisation of the Workshop on Sustainable and Just Economies “Lessons Learned from the COVID-19 Crisis and Enabling Factors for the SDGs” that was held online on 10 July within the framework of the High-Level Political Forum (HLPF). The event was organised in partnership with ILO Green Jobs Programme, International Women’s Rights Action Watch Asia Pacific, Global Reporting Initiative, Women’s Major Group, UN Global Compact, UN Research Institute for Sustainable Development. The workshop brought together information and experiences from different schemes of work on the issue of sustainable economies. These diverse experiences allowed the participants to have a broader understanding into various perspectives and issues under this heading, as well as providing them with tools to enable and support their critical perspectives in these issues. In addition, the workshop included the presentation of tools that promote collaboration among different sectors that can help incentivize and catalyse the achievement of SDGs and a quick transition to sustainable and just economies. In this regard UNCTAD delivered a presentation on the Core SDG indicators for enterprise reporting as the tool for measuring private sector’s contribution to the SDG agenda.
