Crisis Response Journal Crisis Response Journal

COVID-19

Welcome to the Crisis Response Journal Covid-19 page.
On it, you will find resources, advice, professional advisers and updates from our global experts. We don’t want to add to the noise and chatter, so we are only collating information from trusted sources.
It may be a bit rough and ready in the first few days, but we are working on that and have plans for Q&As and much more.
Contact us here to share or ask for advice.

We are a global family. Please support each other, look out for the vulnerable and help those on the front lines to assist those in need. Stay safe.
