Peace-Building in a Pandemic

Date & Time November 18, 2020 12:00pm - 1:00pm

ALLIES will be hosting a special speaking event titled "Peace-Building in a Pandemic" this Wednesday at 12 PM EST. We have the honor to host Britt Sloan, IGL Alum (ALLIES, EPIIC, PNDP) and former Mercy Corps member, and Sharon Ogbogu, a Program Officer at Mercy Corps. Using Nigeria as a case-study, Ms. Sloan and Ms. Ogbogu will discuss how the fight against COVID-19 has derailed peace-building efforts in some African states. Specifically, they will discuss how the redistribution of financial support from peace-building programs to programs related to public health and fighting COVID-19 may undermine the fight against COVID.
