Crisis, reaction and resilience
Hosted by Alliance Magazine
Crises seem to happen with increasing frequency and severity and it is becoming clearer that one form of crisis of can trigger or aggravate another – the Ukraine crisis and the cost of living crisis, floods and climate change and of course any form of natural disaster and humanitarian crises.
- Philanthropy is often an early responder to crises. The first and urgent task is relief, but should philanthropy be doing more to build resilience against future shocks before and after crises?
- When the world’s attention moves on, what can philanthropy do either to make sure that the sufferers are getting the help they need or to rebuild their lives and their societies?
- Given the relationship between crises, is it more important for different types of funders to make common cause or should they stick to their area of expertise?
