Looking back at 2022 – building international partnerships amid a “perfect storm” of crises
Exactly one year ago, on 8 April 2020, we launched our Team Europe global response to COVID-19. As soon as the pandemic was declared, all major European development actors decided to come together in the understanding that as long as we are not all safe, no one is safe.
On this International Women’s Day, I want to pay tribute to incredible women in the past, present and future with gratitude, pride and determination.
The human cost of the COVID-19 pandemic is unimaginable. So many of us have lost loved ones and are suffering from isolation. We have all seen the virus disrupting our lives. However, apart from grief, we must also share hope, rooted in the common will to fight back.
