World Summit

Ministerial Global Governance Summit
Virtual Summit 
Dates: 26 – 28 June 2020 

CollatEd Lab cordially invites world leaders, governments, and United Nations agencies to convene at the Global Governance Summit 2020. Facilitating policy dialogue on aligning sustainable finance, resilient healthcare systems, global government capacity-building, and combatting COVID-19 in light of recent events, GGS unites economic development stakeholders to accelerate the SDGs, kicking off a decade of effective, innovative action.

This high-level summit is designed to offer a space for collective learning and knowledge exchange among delegates on how worldwide government officials such as Presidents, Prime Ministers, Ministers, Ambassadors, African Union, European Union leaders and other diplomats endure global development challenges within the framework of the UN Agenda 2030 and its 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The SDGs will be addressed through a multi-stakeholder approach. Civil society organizations, national governments, inter-governmental agencies, multilateral institutions as well as the private sector are striving to shape positively impactful policies based on Agenda 2030. In this context, the Summit positions the collaboration between public, academic and private stakeholders as a global developmental actor that fosters the Sustainable Development Goals. The Ministerial World Summit is at the heart of the agenda of international development, the combined ability to mobilize global institutions, organizations, and leaders, and the dissemination of CollatEd’s call to action aimed at accelerating the seventeen SDGs.

Spillovers from Asia, Europe, and the US – including depressed commodity revenues (due to declining demand and prices), rising import costs, a collapse in tourism, reduced availability of basic goods, lack of foreign direct investment, and a sharp reversal in portfolio financial flows – have already exacerbated these constraints.
