This event will shed light on the nexus between faith, public policy and gender in relation to COVID-19.
Specialists in each area will reflect on the role of faith-based organizations in shaping the post COVID-19 world, the kinds of innovations that will be used in designing new policies, both national and global, with respect to gender-based analysis of COVID-19.
The webinar will also include discussions on the variations and similarities between national responses to COVID-19, making sense of global efforts to provide public goods that serve humanity in the midst of fierce private sector interest, deploying tools and instruments that will gain more popularity in a post-COVID world.
Participants will be informed about peacebuilding and conflict transformation processes in a post-COVID-19 world. Conflict and gender sensitive approaches are vital to inform policy makers about humanitarian interventions.
