In consideration of the situation faced by the entire aid sector, we organized an experience-sharing session on the covid-19 crisis.
Thank you to all the participants who attended the Covid-19 crisis experience sharing session on Monday 02/11 from 6:15pm to 7:45pm. You can find the abstract and recording of the session below:
Covid-19 crisis experience sharing: How can humanitarian data practices come out of the pandemic stronger?
This experience-sharing session will bring together panelists from ACAPS, Ground Truth Solutions, Insecurity Insight and Translators without Borders, as well as co-facilitators from CartONG and the H2H Network.
The global pandemic is far from over. Around the world, Covid-19 compounds and complicates existing humanitarian crises. The humanitarian architecture as we know was built in the post-World War II era- no crisis to date has had such a huge impact on humanitarian and development practices, with drastically reduced access to in-country actors and affected populations globally, shaking up traditional ways of working.
This session aims at having “humanitarian to humanitarian” organisations bringing to the table a unique set of learnings around the response to the pandemic, from a standpoint of highly specialised technical experts, supporting front line workers, while assisting mostly remotely or through local partners. Now is a great time to share emerging learnings and reflect collectively on how can the sector adapt its data practices to physical distancing constraints, and ultimately come out stronger of the pandemic.

We warmly thank all the humanitarian and development actors, and all technical experts and researchers who are joining this year's edition as panelists.
