Author: William Avis

This weekly Covid-19, Conflict, and Governance Evidence Summary aims to signpost DFID and other UK government departments to the latest evidence and opinions on Covid-19 (C19), to inform and support their responses. This week, features resources on: Intimate Partner Violence during the COVID-19; the resilience of African Food Systems, Tackling the C19 youth employment crisis in Asia and the Pacific and the impact that that C19 has had on Myanmar’s conflicts. Many of the core C19 themes continue to be covered this week, including: including: increasing gender based violence during C19; the divides between people/groups exacerbated by C19; and the dramatic implications of rising food insecurity. The summary uses two main sections – (1) literature: – this includes policy papers, academic articles, and long-form articles that go deeper than the typical blog; and (2) blogs & news articles. It is the result of one day of work, and is thus indicative but not comprehensive of all issues or publications.
