COVID-19 – How we plan to respond

COVID-19 – How we plan to respond

In Rwanda, the SEforALL Forum has been postponed to 2021. In the Philippines, the country has enacted a nation-wide travel ban and city-wide lockdowns across Metro Manila. In Malaysia, movement restrictions have now also been put in place and I expect that Indonesia may enact similar measures in the next week, and even days. In Sudan, we were planning a workshop in the next few months that also now looks in doubt.

As the global response to the COVID-19 Pandemic develops, it is clear that no organisation or government can continue in a ‘business as usual approach’. No matter how ‘digitally prepared’ a workplace might be, or worthy their cause might sound. 

In the last week, it has become clear to us all at Climate Tracker that we will need to make significant changes over the next days, weeks and months. 

Our mission of supporting young climate journalists around the world will remain the same, but our methods must change, adapt and in some cases, be put on hold, or be totally inverted.
