This webinar will discuss the alignment of the European recovery plans with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

To recover from the COVID-19 crisis the EU will make €672.5 billion available through its Recovery and Resilience Facility. To benefit from the support of the Facility, Belgium and the other Member States will prepare recovery and resilience plans, which will be submitted by April 2021 in the framework of the European Semester. We will discuss the role of the SDGs in these plans, both for the EU as a whole and for Belgium in particular.
