▪ Climate-related risks and their multidimensional consequences including food security and human mobility, among others.
▪ Digital transformation and technology, including solutions to address the dark side of technological advancement as well as to harness its potential for empowerment and agency.
▪ Youth engagement and a consideration of future generations and intergenerational collaboration.
▪ Strengthening comprehensive and integrated data analysis, collection and monitoring to better prevent, mitigate or respond to the multidimensional consequences of complex crises.
