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 exercise was divided into several themes: Economy, education, employment, gender, social protection and health.
