PARTICIPANTS IN DIALOGUES HELD ACROSS THE WORLD DISCUSSED THE URGENT NEED FOR GREATER INTERNATIONAL COOPERATION IN RESPONSE TO THE PANDEMIC
Dialogue participants discussed the role that the United Nations and Member States can play to foster cooperation and collaboration, including through:
  • Increased dialogue between countries and all stakeholders, including NGOs
  • Identifying common purposes between communities, and across societal and generational divides
  • Better coordination with government and donor agencies
  • Encouraging social responsibility
  • More partnerships with local communities and relevant stakeholders
  • Engagement with volunteers, and investment in initiatives that up-scale up volunteer efforts
This was in addition to calls for more investment in and coordination at the international level of research to understand the causes and effects of the pandemic, Member State pandemic response policy implications, and to facilitate the development of a COVID-19 vaccine and treatment, and ensuring equal access to it.
It is of paramount importance that the recovery must be built upon the spirit of humanity. The lesson we learnt from the pandemic is that literally no one is safe unless everyone is safe, telling us about the necessity of leaving no one behind in the process. Most of the participants thought that rethinking the global economy is central to the re-launch after the pandemic. Such process should happen by prioritising help distribution to the communities that suffered the most. For that to happen, participants in this event firmly believed that international organisations must be modernised to deliver better results and put solidarity to the core of the cooperation.

  • Prioritise protection and support to vulnerable populations
  • Invest in and use research and solutions that will lead to more effective policy solutions to eradicate inequalities
  • Lead the fight against COVID-19-related discrimination and foster inclusivity, including for vulnerable groups
We need to rethink the global economy making sure that human rights are a central element, and having the primary goal [be] to address inequalities... we need to reshape the way we measure success and growth in our companies and countries, going beyond GDP and going beyond profit margins.
