UN Research Roadmap for the COVID-19 Recovery: Leveraging the Power of Science for a More Equitable, Resilient and Sustainable Future   [open pdf - 0B]

From the Executive Summary: "The COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] crisis has exposed stark global inequities, fragilities and unsustainable practices that pre-date this pandemic and have intensified its impact. Recovering better from COVID-19 will depend on bold efforts to strengthen health systems, shore up social protections, protect economic opportunities, bolster multilateral collaboration, and enhance social cohesion. [...] Science represents the world's best chance for recovering better from the COVID-19 crisis. [...] This 'UN Research Roadmap for the COVID-19 Recovery' provides a framework for leveraging the power of science in support of a better socio-economic recovery and a more equitable, resilient and sustainable future. [...] This 'Roadmap' is a commitment and a guide to make use of research to determine how COVID-19 socio-economic recovery efforts can be purposefully designed to stimulate equity, resilience, sustainability and progress towards the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The 'Roadmap' outlines a set of 25 research priorities - five priorities for each of the five pillars of the UN's socio-economic recovery framework - as well as numerous sub-priorities providing more comprehensive elaboration."
