Digital Summit: Global Development beyond Covid-19

Event Date

Thursday, 24th September 2020

10:30 am


Join us from 10.30-15.00 on Thursday 24 September for our first ever digital summit!

This interactive online event will bring together representatives from the diverse international development and humanitarian community in Scotland and beyond to explore the big picture implications of Covid-19 on our sector and the communities we work with.

Together we'll explore examples of good practice and innovative responses to the pandemic, as well as considering how we can work collaboratively to forge a more sustainable, inclusive and resilient future, as envisaged in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

Event aims:

  • To offer insight into the complex and far-reaching effects of the Covid-19 pandemic on the development and humanitarian sector;
  • To share examples of good practice where our sector has adapted and responded to the pandemic in order to address emerging needs;
  • To explore lessons learned from the pandemic and our response to it, and how this can help us to “build back better”;
  • To connect representatives from the global development and humanitarian sector and encourage new collaborations and continued partnership.

How will it work?

Hosted on an easy-to-use online platform, the event will feature engaging live sessions and options to interact with fellow participants through chat functions, discussion boards and virtual networking.

You'll have the chance to shape the day according to your own interests and background, choosing from a range of sessions on relevant topics, including:

  • Covid-19 and the evolving funding landscape
  • Climate change and Covid-19: resilience against a convergence of crises
  • Enhancing the humanitarian-development-peace nexus post-Covid-19
