October has come to an end and with it the IV International Congress on Hunger and Poverty in the Americas, organized, on this occasion, by the Costa Rican Chapter of our International Institute of Human Rights. Given the current situation, once again the congress was held virtually, with headquarters in the Youtube channel of the aforementioned chapter.

As was to be expected, the pandemic only deepened the inequalities that plague the region, which is why the 2021 edition was dedicated to problematize these new conditions (or those old conditions in their new disguise) that make our Americas one of the most unequal regions in the world.

That is why our IV Congress was called "Pandemic: challenges and opportunities for human development in Latin America".

On Monday, October 25, we attended the conversation between Dr. Leticia Teleguario and Dr. Hernando Chindoy and Dr. Andrés Segundo Tejerina, moderated by Dr. Emilio Arias, on a historical debt accentuated by the pandemic: the role of indigenous populations in Latin American societies.

After a lively debate, Tuesday was opened to the discussion of the material conditions of existence in the region with the panel "The most unequal region in the world: repercussions of the COVID-19 pandemic in the weakened economies of Latin America" where MSc. Shirley Saborio and Marta Oliver, Dr. Jorge Padilla, Ms. Brenda del Río Machín and Mr. C.P. Antonio Rocha met, organized by Dr. Carlos Carranza.

On Wednesday 27th the congress discussed the debt with the planet in "Eco-politics, environment and sustainable development in the post-pandemic". Our largest panel gathered around the environmental theme at the dawn of a catastrophe with explicitly ecological roots and which depends on our relationship with the ecosystem, the proletarian of a planet dominated by a disinterested human species. Karla Arroyo and María Cristina Giraldo Quijano, naturalist Ernesto Alfonso Gamiz Ocaña, Dr. Jorge Cabrera Medaglia, Ms. Lizzet Castañeda Payá and Dr. Luís Jiménez under the moderation of Dr. Jorge Padilla.

The fourth day of the congress provided space for two simultaneous panels, both under the idea of "Education as an axis of economic and social development: impact of COVID-19 in Latin America". In one, Bachelor Jordan Ulate moderated a debate between Ms. Sandra Robayo Noreña, Drs. Quince Duncan, Ronald Soto and Julio Kala and Dr. Cynthia Delgado Hidalgo. For his part, Jordan Ulate found us in the next panel coordinating the conversation between Dr. Pamela Mariño Zegarra and Drs. Carlos Murillo, Emilio Torres and Julio Calvo Alvarado.

On Friday it was the turn of the youth: moderated by Luciana Gesto; Isabel Conde, Tomás Dardanelli, Mariana Pereira Briceño and Felicitas Gahan are on the panel "Changes and challenges for young people in times of pandemic".

On Saturday 30, MSc. Yamid Zuluaga moderated the panel "Confinement and violence" where Drs. Eva Camacho and Yolanda Martinez, Dr. Elbio Ramos and MSc. Miroslava Bonilla Cabañas spoke.

Finally, to crown the IV Congress, the panel on "Good practices in Human Rights, Costa Rican experience" listened to Ms. Melissa Fallas and Gabriela Mendez and looked to the future with new tools.
