The Forum, which had to be postponed earlier this year due to COVID-19, is back in the form of a Virtual Series starting June 9 and running through August. Most of the original sessions will be offered in a variety of virtual formats. The Forum convenes practitioners and policymakers from around the world to exchange experiences and lessons learnt from engaging in environments affected by fragility, conflict and violence.
Drawing on their unique experiences, government leaders, NGO partners, and innovators will showcase examples of policy actions and both public and private sector-led responses—across education, health, food security, digital connectivity, and social protection. Join us for this session!
