The New Humanitarian is organizing a webinar on how COVID-19 will impact crisis zones. The webinar will start at 14:00 (GMT+1) Thursday 19 March. You may register for the webinar here.

You are invited to an online conversation organised by The New Humanitarian about how COVID-19 will impact crisis zones.

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

Speakers confirmed so far:

– Ben Parker, TNH Senior Editor (moderator)
– 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? Is the aid sector prepared? Where should priorities lie? And what does this crisis reflect about the changing face of vulnerability?
