UN Secretary-General António Guterres gives the 18th Nelson Mandela Annual Lecture virtually from New York. In an impassioned address, he challenges people and partners everywhere to combat the “inequality pandemic” as the coronavirus outbreak continues to rage around the world.

COVID-19 is a human tragedy, the UN Chief says, but it has also created a generational opportunity. “A recovery based on a New Social Contract and a New Global Deal will put the world back on track to realize the promise of the Paris Agreement on Climate Change and achieve the Sustainable Development Goals.”
