Author: Siân Herbert

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: Rohingya refugee experiences of C19 in the Cox’s Bazar camps; how civil society can progress the Women, Peace and Security agenda during C19; how to address intersecting risks from disasters and C19; and how C19 is affecting peace, conflict and federalism in Nepal. Many of the core C19 themes continue to be covered this week, including: surging gender-based violence during C19; increasing food insecurity; the particular risks facing refugees and displaced people; and lessons from previous health crises (Ebola). 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.
