For several years, the world has been on a positive path toward ending global hunger and poverty, among other goals. However, the current global pandemic has changed all of that. In the tenth episode of LTNS, Michael speaks with Shantanu Mukherjee, the chief of policy analysis at the Division for the SDGs in the UN Department of Economic and Social Affairs, about how the coronavirus pandemic is affecting the advancement of global development. Mukherjee offers insight into how global crises often put up roadblocks in the fight for a better world but can also encourage international cooperation.
