According to the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP), The COVID-19 pandemic could almost double the number of people suffering acute hunger, pushing it to more than a quarter of a billion by the end of 2020. In addition, as stressed by the UN Secretary General, António Guterres, human rights cannot be an afterthought in times of crisis.

In this webinar, Professor Tamsin Bradley and Professor Leïla Choukroune from University of Portsmouth as well as Frank Matsaert and Palu Modi will be discussing what could be the future of development aid when the Global South is faced with one of the most serious crises of a generation? How to support countries and actors on the ground, think ahead and plan a new form of globalisation better taking into consideration human needs and so able to meet the SDGs objectives?
