Coping with New and Old Crises. Global and Regional Cooperation in an Age of Epidemic Uncertainty

The Stimson Center and the Doha Forum launched the 2020 Doha Forum report, Coping with New and Old Crises: Global and Regional Cooperation in an Age of Epidemic Uncertainty.

The event unpacked key analysis from the report, including global and regional responses to the COVID-19 pandemic and its associated financial, economic, and social repercussions worldwide. It discussed how these outcomes intersect with pre-existing and emerging global challenges, such as climate change, violent conflict, cyber-attacks, and extreme poverty.

Most urgently, it aimed to identify the priority elements and innovation ideas that both ensure a durable, green, and broad-based recovery from COVID-19 but also the revitalization of global institutions.
