This is the panorama of sustainable development in 2021

2020 was a tough year. Almost every country suffered various political, economic and social changes due to the COVID-19 pandemic. In 2021 it is important that countries make decisions that allow them to look forward to a better future. This could be achieved through the balance between the economic, social and environmental dimensions.

Given the urgency to develop a vaccine against COVID-19, the “Access to COVID-19 Tools (ACT) Accelerator” initiative was created in April 2020, which seeks to bring together various actors whose financial contribution will allow research for the development of an effective vaccine. More than 170 countries of all income levels are participating in the project, which seeks to benefit the most vulnerable countries.

How can an equitable distribution of the vaccine, especially within developing countries, be guaranteed? The creation of the COVAX mechanism answers this question, enabling a support system to assure a fair distribution.
