WASH & The COVID-19 Pandemic Virtual Symposium: Responses for Recovery & Resilience
One year after the COVID-19 pandemic was declared, countries across the region are at different stages of their preparedness, response and recovery and with varying experiences – they have observed different levels of resilience across their WASH, health and economic systems and have tried a range of responses. Some countries will have been through situations not yet faced by others, and have lessons to share.
Water and WASH Futures convened an online symposium to encourage participants to reflect, share and learn from our COVID-19 responses, to improve future responses to COVID-19, and to reflect upon readiness and ways to improve resilience to future pandemics and major disruptions, including climate change.
The online symposium ran over two days and included 2 panel sessions and 10 workshops. Recordings and resources from each session have been collated below.
