Parliamentarians and staff from approx. 80 countries joined today to discuss alternative development metrics, such as subjective well-being, and their role in tracking progress on building back better from the COVID-19 pandemic.

The webinar was co-organized by Parliamentarians for the Global Goals, Sustainable Development Solutions Network (SDSN), and the President of the Inter-Parliamentary Union (IPU) as the last in a series of four.

They were joined by experts Dr. Shun Wang, Professor at the KDI School of Public Policy & Management, Roberto Gil Zuarth, Former President of the Mexican Senate, and Dr. Deborah Russell, Chair of the Finance and Expenditure Committee of the New Zealand Parliament.
