Watch our online conversation “Behind the headlines: How will COVID-19 impact crisis zones?”

Aid agencies are scrambling to adapt as the COVID-19 pandemic is felt throughout the world. TNH Senior Editor Ben Parker discusses some of the most pressing issues with leading experts and practitioners from across the humanitarian sector:

  • Jeremy Konyndyk, Senior Policy Fellow, Center for Global Development
  • Virginie Lefèvre, Program and Partnerships Coordinator, Amel Association
  • Suze van Meegen, Advocacy Manager, Norwegian Refugee Council in Somalia
  • Karl Blanchet, Director, Centre for Education and Research in Humanitarian Action (CERAH)

How will COVID-19 impact crisis-affected and already-vulnerable communities? How is the humanitarian sector adjusting to life under the shadow of a new global pandemic? Where should priorities lie? And what does this crisis reflect about the changing face of vulnerability?

Stay tuned next week as we publish excerpts and analysis of the conversation. If you would like to share questions and concerns regarding COVID-19 and your work, please email us or comment below.
