"The world as we knew it before COVID-19 will never return. As countries and societies across the world try to adapt to new realities, the case for multilateralism and international collaboration remains stronger than ever. This needs to happen within already agreed frameworks in order to address multiple issues from poverty alleviation, biodiversity loss and ecosystems restoration, sustainable consumption and production to climate change. The Paris Agreement offers holistic developmental approaches that need to be delivered for macro, micro and individual ‘reset’ in our post COVID-19 future."
