Launch of the Sustainable Recovery Pledge: Building a better future for all, with human rights at its heart.

The COVID-19 pandemic continues to have devastating effects on societies and economies around the world. It is negatively impacting the enjoyment of human rights and hampering progress towards achieving the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

In this online event we are launching the Sustainable Recovery pledge. The undersigning States express their determination to build back better from the COVID-19 pandemic, using the 2030 Agenda, grounded in States’ human rights obligations, as well as the Paris Agreement, as the blueprint.

The pledge reflects the shared understanding and belief that preparedness, response and recovery strategies that are shaped by and respect human rights will result in better, more just and more sustainable outcomes.

In the spirit of and pursuit of partnerships and alliances with all sectors of society, including women, youth, workers, businesses, indigenous peoples, the scientific community, and the multiple voices of civil society, the undersigning States invite non-state actors to endorse the pledge and to share their reflections at the launch.


At the launch, government representatives will pledge their commitments while senior UN officials, civil society, prominent business representatives, and human rights experts will reflect on essential aspects of sustainable recovery that are linked to human rights and the SDGs in this decade of action.

The online event will take place on Teams. Kindly register via this link.
