On October 9th, 2020, Asia Culture and Art Organization and the UNDP Kabul Office brought together economists and student researchers to discuss income inequality trends. Panelists discussed the future and what it holds, what we need to do now to reduce income inequality, and what role the United Nations can play.
Income inequality is a megatrend that has sobering implications. It is a significant impediment to sustainable development goals and a major cause of public protests worldwide.
The webinar was part of a series of global consultations that the United Nations’ Secretary-General launched for its 75th anniversary. This consultation will continue until the end of 2020.
