Interlinkages between sustainable development goals and Covid related disaster risk

We identify the key interlinkages (trade-offs and synergies) between the Sustainable Development Goals and the Sendai framework for Covid related disaster risk to analyze the impact of these SDG interlinkages in responding effectively to the Covid-19 crisis. We further conduct regional comparisons between the different categories of countries, depending on their level of development, their choice of policy responses to the Covid-19 crisis and the severity of Covid-19 as measured by the Covid mortality and morbidity rates. This analysis is critical in determining and understanding the short and long-term response of countries to Covid-19 within the sustainable development framework.
