The summit is being organized virtually by the World Economic Forum (WEF).

The summit offers the first global platform of 2022 for world leaders to come together to share their visions for the year ahead.

The key issues that will be discussed include:

Climate action: Climate action failure, extreme weather and biodiversity loss are ranked the top three most-severe risks for the world over the next decade according to the Forum’s Global Risks Report 2022.

Pandemic Recovery: Vaccine inequities, addressing antimicrobial resistance, disparities in health coverage and outcomes, and the importance of mental healthcare for all (and especially our global health workforce) will be discussed.

Economic and social resilience: After decades of progress in addressing poverty and income inequality, COVID-19 set us back – bringing the first rise in extreme poverty in a generation. This will be discussed here.
