On Tuesday, November 22 2022, CIC Edmonton will host Results Canada founder and economist Jean-François Tardif, for an in-depth conversation on the lasting consequences of the pandemic, referred to as "scarring", and to take your questions. The two years after the onset of COVID-19 has not been sufficient to bring back health systems to pre-pandemic levels or to offset learning gaps. With significant donor funding going to supporting Ukraine and higher interest rates crippling highly indebted low-income countries (LICs), the combined effect of other crises can send many LICs down a spiral of dysfunctionality and social tensions that could lead to catastrophic unrest and disruptions. How will these obstacles impact how SDG goals are attained? What can be done to address the gaps caused by COVID-19 scarring? Join our speaker, Jean Francois Tardif, to hear his take on the solution to these multi-level crises.
