Recovering From The Pandemic Through Sustainability


The Sixth Annual Conference on Sustainable Development in Latin America and the Caribbean will be held on April 5th to April 9th, 2021 at the Yale School of the Environment. This year’s theme is “Recovering from the Pandemic Through Sustainability”.

The 2021 conference will explore the acute impact of the COVID-19 health crisis and the impact it has had in Latin Americans. The region has been one of the hardest hit by the pandemic. While this can be explained and studied from the lenses of sustainability and social justice alike, the conference is more concerned with looking ahead. What comes next in the development of the LAC region will be crucial in determining if and when true social equity is achieved, and sustainable development provides a useful framework from which to look at a potential equitable recovery.

Born out of student initiative, the event will be co-hosted by Yale School of the Environment and the Council on Latin American and Iberian Studies (CLAIS) at The MacMillan Center.
