The world has been profoundly affected by the COVID-19 crisis. International development efforts – which hinge on strong interpersonal connections – are being faced with challenges on such a large scale. Barriers to knowledge sharing, learning, and adapting in this new environment are posing challenges to project implementation around the world. Collaborating, Learning, and Adapting (CLA) – perhaps in new and different ways – is more critical than ever as all of our systems of resilience are tested.
Thank you to those who joined us for the first webinar in our series Learning and Adapting during COVID-19. More than 250 participants joined us online for a discussion on how implementers and donors are establishing flexible plans, systems, and communication strategies to both adapt to current country contexts and prepare for future impacts of COVID-19.
