UNDRR Africa Webinar: African Science and Technology Advisory Group for Disaster Risk Reduction research contributions to reinforce resilience in the face of COVID-19 and beyond

The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic is an unprecedented event in human history, requiring the scientific community to work as one to support societies during and beyond this global crisis. The pandemic impacts go well beyond the health sector including all the sectors threatening the failure of the entire system which may cause a social collapse as the global economy comes apart, societies may, too. These cascading impacts show the inter-connection of risk, underlining the crucial need for a concerted effort to accelerate disaster risk reduction. This webinar aims to contribute to global efforts to build more resilient societal systems capable of preventing such future crises and encourages scientific research on the analysis of lessons learned and use the recovery as an opportunity for stronger and longer-term resilience.

UNDR Asia-Pacific Webinar: The Human Rights Dimensions of the COVID-19 Pandemic 

The COVID-19 pandemic is presenting unique challenges to the protection of human rights around the world, including the Asia-Pacific region. Pandemic-related racism, xenophobia, hate speech and discrimination are reportedly on the rise in the region and need to be countered with robust efforts to promote fundamental freedoms of expression and association, provisions of targeted support for vulnerable groups and equitable and meaningful implementation of socio-economic rights across the region.

This webinar focuses on the importance of ensuring a rights-based approach to all disasters, including the COVID-19 pandemic. It will highlight the key human rights issues that have emerged in relation to the COVID crisis and offer policy advice and recommendations to combat all forms of discrimination and human rights abuses.
