As is well known, the 2030 agenda presents several sustainability goals that concern both the Nations and the global world, in a series of objectives that are aimed at a more sustainable global system from every point of view. What will be the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic?
In the very first days of 2020, few would have imagined that important and global problems like those relating to the Sustainability Development would have been overshadowed by an equally dramatic emergency. The Covid-19 epidemic has, without a doubt, shifted the attention onto a more contingent issue, but the risk is now to lose sight of a series of problems whose impact is only more distributed over time, and whose effects can be devastating on a worldwide scale. In order to address these problems, in 2015 the United Nations identified 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and inserted them in the 2030 Agenda, a guide that should have shaped the actions of all Countries around the world.
And so it was until 2020, when the Coronavirus turned up, upsetting a balance that will probably never be the same as in the pre-pandemic era again.
Let’s see what are the 17 SDGs, and how the current situation could hinder their actualiztion.
