image

As the COVID-19 pandemic reverberates around the globe, we are reminded that disasters have not been staying home and will need managed in a new and more challenging environment. The current global health crisis has been a stress test for emergency preparedness and response systems that are in place, and governments are learning where those systems have strengths, and where they need to be improved and adapted. This event will be the second session of GFDRR’s Building Resilience during the Covid-19 Crisis Speaker Series. We will be hearing from officials working on the front lines in Vanuatu, India, Japan, and the Caribbean what they have learned so far about responding to and preparing for tropical cyclones during COVID-19, and what advice they have for others who are facing similar challenges.
