Our aim was to gather experts to address the challenges COVID-19 has brought up regarding health, social protection and the economy.

Our target audience were both academics and non-academics, government agencies and civil servants, policymakers and people who are involved in policies and decision-making, and other members of the GNHiAP. This diverse representation of experts and stakeholders from different disciplines offered a great opportunity to learn about COVID-19 crisis from a multidisciplinary perspective.
