A limited podcast series exploring the future of crisis response
What does the “global reset” brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic mean for the aid industry? How should we rethink the way the world responds to crises in this time of disruption? As international aid reaches operational, financial, and ethical limits, what would it take to translate longstanding efforts at reform into meaningful and positive change?
From decolonising aid to networked humanitarianism, from the make-up of NGO governance boards to reform of the UN Security Council, co-hosts Heba Aly and Jeremy Konyndyk will take you on a thought-provoking journey as they explore the future of humanitarianism. Heba, director of The New Humanitarian, and Jeremy, senior policy fellow at the Center for Global Development, will discuss the drivers of change affecting international aid, from the increasingly protracted nature of crises, to the funding environment and opportunities offered by digital.
