A stocktake of global humanitarian assistance during the COVID-19 pandemic

The Covid-19 pandemic presents an unprecedented challenge to the humanitarian system in both scale and complexity. It impacts those in and at risk of humanitarian crisis, as well as the governments, economies and institutions that have historically played a key role in international humanitarian responses.

Within this challenging global context, the Global Humanitarian Assistance Report 2020 provides a concise overview of the humanitarian financing landscape in 2019 and shares analysis of emerging trends and issues in relation to the Covid-19 pandemic response.

The webinar includes a presentation by Development Initiatives unpacking key facts and findings from the report and contextualising the response to the Covid-19 pandemic within the wider crisis financing landscape. A panel of experts then engage in a Q&A and share their unique perspectives on financing the response to the Covid-19 pandemic and the wider implications for crisis financing.
