February has been a busy month for our team of reporters. We asked David Malpass about his decision to split the World Bank Africa department in two, and brought you insight into the trends defining the future of development, according to U.N. Development Programme chief Achim Steiner. We’ve also continued to closely follow the spread of the novel coronavirus, COVID-19, including what Latin America is doing to prepare for an outbreak.
For our Devex Pro subscribers, we took our coverage even deeper. We explored five years of OECD climate funding data in a webinar with our Analytics team and explained how UNDP is handling ”complex asks” from cities on the environment. And through an exclusive conference call featuring an adviser on Medair’s Global Emergency Response Team, we dove into the role NGOs could play in the event of a widespread COVID-19 outbreak in Africa.
