This event is the opening session of a series multi-sectoral dialogues that WRI Mexico is leading with several partners that aim to identify priority issues and possible solutions to help ensure that the world's response to the global health crisis leads to the construction of a more prosperous, more sustainable, more equitable, more resilient future. Despite the fact that the COVID-19 pandemic is above all a health crisis, it has exacerbated the problems that we previously faced as humanity, such as poverty and inequality and our vulnerability to disasters and diseases.

These conversations will continue through June and July and will culminate in a roadmap with possible solutions.
