Aid in the time of a global pandemic:
Confronting the challenges of fragility, poverty

and climate change

Reality of Aid International Coordinating Committee

In exposing deep social, economic and political inequalities, the pandemic may also be an opportunity to drive the necessary policy reforms for radical change in development cooperation.

In this chapter, the Reality of Aid International Coordinating Committee presents the current global landscape of development cooperation: a triple crisis of poverty, inequality, and a climate emergency compounded by a global pandemic, and reaffirms the urgent call for fundamental reforms in policies and practices of the humanitarian and development finance system.
