How the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted the Sustainable Development Goals and what this means for the future of education in the developing world

The UN has recently updated the context of its SDGs to reflect the shifting socioeconomic and health and wellbeing landscape in the wake of COVID-19. While the world is still in the grip of the pandemic and constantly adapting its response to this unimaginable crisis, the development sector has been forced to look at its pre-pandemic strategies while assessing how to adapt. All stakeholders must now consider new ways in which we can tackle not just the immediate impact of COVID-19 but also the reality of this unconceivable setback to achieving systematic change.
