The UK will host world leaders at the 2021 G7 Summit in an exceptionally challenging context. Covid-19’s colossal impact on global economies has exacerbated an unprecedented scale of need globally.
Now is the wealthiest countries’ chance to help tackle the systemic issues that have left countries ill-equipped to withstand a global health emergency and prevented progress on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The G7 nations are critical for setting a truly transformative agenda that can help stimulate global action to address our most pressing challenges. G7 leaders and ministers must prioritise creating a more sustainable, inclusive, equitable and resilient world for all – especially the most marginalised and excluded people.
