Crises and shocks like the COVID-19 pandemic will continue to disrupt our lives due to future infectious disease outbreaks, extreme climate events, increasing trade tensions and complex geopolitics, which is why resilience building is more crucial than ever. If countries address each new crisis as it arises, we will again have a similar disjointed response and face similar disruptions, undermining development gains, with severe implications on children’s learning outcomes, mental and physical health, and future employability.
As countries move towards “building forward better” from the COVID-19 pandemic, holistic preparedness and resilience that incorporate technical, human capacity, economic and social components will be critical in strengthening communities and countries against future shocks and crises. Since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, eWorldwide Group has been taking the lead in developing global frameworks and standards for pandemic preparedness and resilience in collaboration with standards organizations, governments, the private sector and civil society to address the multitude of complex and interrelated challenges in a holistic manner.
