We begin another year in the grips of a global pandemic.
COVID-19 continues to upend lives, plans and hopes.
The only certainty is more uncertainty.
Meanwhile, inequalities are growing.
Inflation is rising. 
The climate crisis, pollution and biodiversity loss rage on.
We face a cauldron of political unrest and ferocious conflicts.
