Oxfam warned that Covid-19 could push half a billion people into poverty, approximately 8% of the world’s population.
Clearly, this has serious implications and is likely to be very impactful. More importantly, how the world emerges out of this crisis will in great measure be dependent on collective and not individual effort.
Among our immediate actions must be thoughtful consideration to the forming of meaningful collaborations and innovative partnerships at individual, business and governmental levels if we are to stay afloat and maintain supply chains, beyond this pandemic.
The best time to collaborate is now!
