The COVID-19 pandemic is exposing complex and deeply entrenched issues at various levels. Already we are seeing increased humanitarian and development challenges as a result. Meanwhile, the climate crisis continues to threaten lives and livelihoods, and reverse years of development gains. We need solutions that take into account our new reality. The decisions we take now are crucial. We need to push for COVID recovery that will usher transformation and build resilience everywhere, especially in last mile communities.
