Building a more equal world
Pledge: “I stand for a more equal world: Inequality is all around us and it’s amplified by #COVID19. Let’s rebuild a more equal world to ensure #ProsperityForAll.”
Key message: The COVID-19 recovery is going to be complex and local, regional and global in nature. It is also an opportunity to recalibrate and change human activity in favour of people, the planet and shared prosperity.
But building a more equal world requires a clear vision. UNCTAD has mapped out strategic actions that can be taken to help improve trade, finance, investment and technology for the benefit of all.
The post-pandemic recovery is a moment for all to work together to implement already well-known policy pathways to prosperity for all that centre on, among others, more effective taxation, greater distribution of wealth, and stronger social safety nets. Greater equality is possible and necessary.
