    What: Global socio-political and economic difficulties abound. The COVID-19 pandemic lingers in many parts of the world and despite some progress, equitable access to vaccine remains a challenge. Furthermore, rampant inflation and rising interest rates threaten to derail the global economic recovery and stall progress towards achieving the Sustainable Development Goals. Meanwhile, the existential threat of climate change looms large, and the recent Russian invasion of Ukraine has created a humanitarian crisis. Given these urgent global challenges, the world needs the United Nations, a premier multilateral institution, to play a greater leadership role in ensuring effective global coordination and cooperation.

    On April 14, the Global Economy and Development program at the Brookings Institution will host a conversation between Brahima S. Coulibaly, vice president of the Global Economy and Development program, and the United States Ambassador to the United Nations, Linda Thomas-Greenfield. As one of the most experienced and distinguished diplomats, Ambassador Thomas-Greenfield was nominated by President Biden and confirmed by the U.S. Senate with overwhelming support in February 2021. During the fireside chat, Coulibaly and Ambassador Thomas-Greenfield will reflect on the ambassador’s first year in office and touch on an array of timely topics and issues, including the prospect for international cooperation, Ukraine crisis’ implications for the new world order, U.S.-China relations, and the UN reform agenda.
