This UN Research Roadmap for the COVID-19 Recovery provides a framework for leveraging the power of science in support of a better socio-economic recovery and a more equitable, resilient and sustainable future. Designed to complement the UN’s Framework for the Immediate Socio-Economic Response to COVID-19 (April 2020), this Roadmap was rapidly developed in ten weeks through a global participatory process that drew upon insights from researchers, research funders, government policymakers, civil society leaders and UN officials from around the world. The knowledge needs are diverse, but they all illustrate a reality re-emphasized by the COVID-19 pandemic: that all people, systems and generations are intrinsically interdependent and that all societies face shared risks and responsibilities. Interdependence among people emphasizes the need for equity; interdependence among systems points to the need for resilience; and interdependence across generations highlights the need for sustainability.
