As international organisations turn their attention to addressing the impacts of the corona virus pandemic on food security and nutrition in the mid- to long-term, the Global Donor Platform for Rural Development has an important role to play in facilitating information and knowledge sharing within the donor community and with our development partners.

Platform members have established a task force on coordinated donor response to COVID-19, which aims at identifying ongoing actions of members and coordinating their regional and thematic approaches. This topic page is the space where members share information about pandemic response priorities, programmes, and analysis. The page is continuously updated and expanded. Visit us again.
