Achieving the SDGs was never going to be easy. By some estimates the global shortfall of funds to were to the tune of 2.5 trillion dollars per annum. This is before the pandemic set in. Today with governments all over the world diverting large resources to fight the virus and its effects, these resources for SDGs are getting scarcer.
But the good news is that the ozone layer is healing, rivers are cleaner, the AQI has improved, and the wild life is reviving. This may have saved huge and precious resources needed for climate action.
In that sense, Corona may yet be the force that has helped to bring the world onto a new path.
We at SDGCC are encouraged by this new path that humanity has begun to take baby steps on. It is time for each one of us, to awaken to our ability to shape our new world.
It is time to participate and partner our respective governments in the implementation of these SDGs by a set of alternate actions to set a new normal.
