Ready for the next pandemic?

In February 2021, a year and a month after the World Health Organization (WHO) declared covid-19 to be a pandemic, the same entity approved the use of the AstraZeneca/Oxford vaccine to deal with this virus. This vaccine was developed by a team of three professional women from the University of Oxford. One of them was Teresa Lambe, who co-designed the genetic code for the AstraZeneca vaccine.

This vaccinologist will present the conference “Prepared for the next pandemic? Lessons learned from covid-19” on Wednesday, November 3 at 3:00 pm

The objective of this conference is to take stock of the two years of the coronavirus pandemic and discuss what has been learned in terms of public health and science and technology for the global and Peruvian cases. Making this balance in the country that lost 215,000 of its own in this battle is essential to continue walking. Ernesto Gozzer, an epidemiologist at the Universidad Peruana Cayetano Heredia, will comment on Lambe’s dissertation.

Employment: new forms and gaps that persist

An Indian economist specializing in development economics, one of the 18 most influential women economists in the world, Jayati Ghosh, today an advisor to the UN Secretary General, will speak at the CIES Annual Seminar on “Informal employment and gender in post-pandemic developing countries” on Friday the 4th at 8:45 am She wants to highlight the role played by women from the informal economy during the pandemic and even after.

If we take into account that it was the women who sold different products on the street who were the first to come out, armed only with their courage and a mask, this exhibition will bring to the fore precisely this contribution of women, who, from the informal economy, worked for the survival and development of their countries.

The gender gap, “decent work” and how to revalue these women and include them in the formal economy of the countries are concepts that will be present in this keynote speech.

The topic of employment will also be discussed at the research table “Promotion of employment and reduction of informality”, which will be held at the end of Jayati Ghosh’s keynote speech and in which three investigations will be presented on the impact of Sunafil, decisive permanence of civil servants in their posts and on the impact of monetary transfers on labor supply.

Contributions to the 2030 Agenda

A total of 16 academic events, 11 investigations and 4 public events will be presented at the CIES Annual Seminar. Each of the events and investigations will point to the fulfillment of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) proposed by the UN as an urgent action plan to achieve the economic, social and environmental sustainability of all the countries of the world.

And the issues of climate change, development and sustainability will also be specifically and extensively addressed in round tables such as “Societies compatible with global warming in Latin America”, “Policies for Sustainable Development in Peru” and “Mining, institutionality and development”. sustainable”.

By understanding the demands of the SDGs in a comprehensive sense, issues that have to do with equality and decent living conditions will also be addressed, such as in the thematic tables “Fight against violence and human trafficking” and “Migration situation of the Venezuelan population in Peru”.

These issues are important because Peruvians have to overcome the figures of gender violence that has left at least 11,250 victims of the crime of trafficking; We have to see how to integrate in decent conditions a Venezuelan migrant population that is disrupting the cities, increasing pockets of poverty now on the roofs and roofs of the houses; We have to formalize, at least minimally, the informal sectors, which cannot continue to live without access to insurance or employment contracts, and we also have to see how to make the financial system more accessible.

And since to reach the future we will need citizens who are skilled in solving crises of the magnitude of even covid, education will also be discussed. It will be led by Andreas Schleicher, Director of Education at the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) and promoter of the PISA tests, those that help us measure school performance.
