Introduction

The COVID-19 pandemic has had health, economic and social effects, as well as others that have been less visible or invisible. In the field of development cooperation, and, in particular, humanitarian action, it has had a strong impact on the protection of people affected by natural disasters and/or armed conflicts, posing enormous challenges, difficulties and lessons for humanitarian actors.

After a more general analysis of the impact that COVID-19 has had on protection, we will analyse how different responses have been adapted to guarantee protection, like feminist leadership has been in the response to COVID-19 from different local organisations, and we will make visible the impact and changes that COVID-19 has brought about in situations of sexual and gender-based violence in a context such as Palestine.

Participants

Facilitator: Eva Anadón Representative in Palestine at Alianza.

  • Elisa Paz, Independant consultant, gender specialist.
  • Chikumbutso Ngosi, Women´s Rights Coordinator at AAID Malawi.
  • Majeda AlSaqqa, Programmes Director at Culture for Free Thought Association (CFTA), Gaza, Palestine.

Introduction

The COVID-19 pandemic has not only generated new humanitarian needs but has also pushed some pre-existing needs into the background. During this session we will focus on how the pandemic has affected and is affecting the protection component and the displacement of people against the backdrop of the COVID-19 pandemic.

On the other hand, although in a complementary manner, we will analyse the state of localisation in the context of the pandemic. How this has meant a step forward or backward for this commitment that we are so far from fulfilling and what future prospects are envisaged.

Following on from the Grand Bargain commitments, we will look at Cash Transfer Programmes in the framework of Government Social Safety Nets.
