 Compliance with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) today must necessarily go through the adoption of policies that allow progress towards recovery and reconstruction from the devastating effects of the pandemic, ECLAC believes.

Financing for development, food security, energy transition, integrated management of natural disasters and climate action must be enabling policies, said the Acting Executive Secretary of the Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC), Mario Cimoli.

Eight years to meet the deadline for the SDGs, structural challenges for their implementation have increased, in a context of multiple crises, without financing for development and without fiscal space for the economies of the area, it will be impossible, Cimoli said in a Forum on the subject.

It is imperative, he said, to ensure food security and manage rising food prices.

He added that international cooperation is important for the implementation of the energy transition of developing economies that are pressured by rising prices and unpayable debts.

The organization insists on the importance of regional cooperation for a sustainable, inclusive and resilient recovery, other regional needs refer to the urgency of a change that allows progress towards multi-scale sustainable development where equality and sustainability are the goals.
