“Believe in the Power of Change” Interview with Rebeca Grynspan (UNCTAD) – Awake at Night #shorts

“We don’t have to be naive, but we have to believe in change, because change has happened. And we can make it happen again.” – AAN S5-E7

Despite monitoring multiple global crises, Rebeca Grynspan has never lost her faith in the power of change. As Secretary-General of the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD), she is assessing the impact of the war in Ukraine on cash-strapped countries still reeling from the pandemic.

"Rebeca, you recently wrote that we’re facing a perfect storm of crises, climate change, the COVID 19 pandemic, and the war in Ukraine. What does that mean?" "It means to lose in one year, 20 years of progress […] that whatever progress you did in poverty in two decades, you lost it in one year."

The trio of crises – climate change, COVID-19, and the war in Ukraine – is setting global development by decades, with vulnerable countries worst affected by global food and energy shortages. In this episode, Rebeca Grynspan reflects on these setbacks, their disproportionate impact on women, and why the world can never give up on the promise of development.
