Recovery plans for the countries of Latin America and the Caribbean to fight the COVID-10 crisis

More than a year after the COVID-19 crisis, countries from Latin America and the Caribbean continue working to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals and advance towards the fulfillment of the 2030 Agenda. The discussions of the Forum of the Countries of Latin America and the Caribbean on Sustainable Development and the study published by Cepei and ECLAC on the effects of the pandemic on the 2030 Agenda show the actions that are being carried out to propose effective measures to mitigate the effects of the pandemic on the LAC region.

Members of the Cepei team and the Statistics Division of the Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC) gathered together to carry out a study that analyzes the effects of COVID-19 on compliance with the 2030 Agenda by countries of Latin America and the Caribbean. The exercise was divided into several themes: Economy, education, employment, gender, social protection and health. How have they affected, positively and negatively, the decisions of each country in the fulfillment of the 2030 Agenda? Find out here!
