Clare recently took part in an online discussion regarding the impacts of the Covid-19 crisis on international development.
From the event organisers:
The COVID-19 crisis entails numerous challenges, in Europe and in Africa. Alarmingly, it puts at risk some of the recent vital achievements in the fight against poverty and hunger. In the long term, the pandemic may hit vulnerable communities the most but it is already a global challenge. Four outstanding European former ministers, the Utstein Four, have had their own experiences with tackling such international crisis and know how to seize the opportunity for more genuine cooperation and partnership. In the midst of the pandemic their story of female leadership and of the importance of international cooperation has recently been published. On this occasion, and in light of the current developments we want to discuss: How should today’s international development policies be designed to tackle such complex challenges effectively?
