United Nations published this video item, entitled “Melinda French Gates on Gender Equality | SDG Moment | United Nations” – below is their description.

Melinda French Gates remarks on Spotlight on Pathways and Partners: The Gender Equality Imperative.

The SDG Moment serves to place an annual spotlight on the Sustainable Development

Goals (SDGs) and will be held at the beginning of the United Nation’s General Assembly’s High-Level Week. It takes place as the world experiences a deeply uneven response to the COVID-19 pandemic, which risks creating a two-tier recovery with significant implications for the advancement of the SDGs, especially in developing countries.

Convened by the UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, the Moment will provide world

leaders with a platform to showcase the bold plans, actions and solutions that are needed to end the COVID-19 pandemic and set the world on course towards achieving the SDGs. Held in advance of major meetings on food systems, climate, energy, jobs and social protection, the SDG Moment event is expected to build the momentum needed to deliver on the Decade of Action and Keep the Promise of the SDGs.
