Sphere is hosting a series of webinars to share good practice and technical guidance on humanitarian standards in the COVID-19 response. This fifth event will focus on the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on people on the move within the South American region. Providing high quality humanitarian assistance in the framework of displacement – whether caused by violence, disasters, climate change… – is becoming increasingly difficult in light of the current pandemic. During the webinar, local communities and first responders will share their learning and expertise with other humanitarian actors facing the same challenges.

The event will be delivered in Spanish, English and Portuguese. We strive to make this webinar fully accessible by providing simultaneous interpretation and live captions.

 

Esfera organiza una serie de seminarios web para compartir buenas prácticas y orientación técnica sobre normas humanitarias en la respuesta a COVID-19. Este quinto evento de la serie se centrará en el impacto de la pandemia de COVID-19 en las personas desplazadas en la región de América del Sur. Brindar asistencia humanitaria de calidad en el marco del desplazamiento —ya sea causado por la violencia, los desastres, el cambio climático, etc.— se está volviendo cada vez más difícil a la luz de la pandemia actual. En este seminario web, las comunidades locales y los profesionales compartirán su aprendizaje y experiencia con otros actores humanitarios que enfrentan los mismos desafíos.

El evento se realizará en español, inglés y portugués. Nos esforzamos para que este seminario web sea totalmente accesible al proporcionar interpretación simultánea y subtítulos en vivo.
