Protecting the world

The Covid-19 pandemic could devastate parts of the developing world.  But with a concerted, co-ordinated and holistic approach, the international community can avoid a large-scale humanitarian tragedy in vulnerable regions – and protect the rest of the world from destabilisation through poverty, insecurity and mass migration.
