HCP Global Forum – Investing in People and Building Resilience for Recovery - March 1-2, 2021
Investing in people and building resilience for recovery is of paramount importance since the COVID-19 pandemic has compromised in 10 months the gains made in human capital over the last 10 years. This first Human Capital Project (HCP) Global Forum will bring together governmental Focal Points from the 79 HCP countries, senior ministers, development partners, and experts from the private sector and civil society to learn from one another, drive an agenda for change, share expertise and innovations in service delivery, and showcase successful cross-sectoral approaches in human capital investments around the world. This highly interactive Forum will provide spaces for peer discussion and reflection throughout the program.
