The impact of COVID-19 is deeply gendered. Gender-conflict analysis and women’s and girls’ human rights should therefore be at the centre of short- and long-term global responses and recoveries to COVID-19, future pandemics and crises. Now and the Future – Pandemics and Crisis: Gender Equality, Peace and Security in a COVID-19 World and Beyond is a multi-country project with 22 partners which assesses the impact of COVID-19 on peace, security and gender inequality.

This body of evidence will enable governments, the international community and civil society to better respond to COVID-19, future pandemics and crises, as well as deliver on their commitments to the Women, Peace and Security agenda.

The organisations outlined recommendations for the local, national and international response to COVID-19, future pandemics and crises.
