Coming Together to Support Communities in Times of Crisis
Crisis situations -- from acute shocks to chronic stresses -- often illuminate each sector's skills, pressures, requirements and need for nuance. For example, philanthropy's flexibility and ability to act fast allows it to play a unique role in supporting individual communities through hard times. The private sector's capacity to create and leverage innovative technologies and distribute goods and services can help rebuild cities. And finally, governments play a vital role by setting standards, establishing policies, mobilizing resources and coordinating action. It is during crises that cross-sector collaboration becomes truly imperative. And it is only through integrated prevention and response strategies that long-term resilience can be achieved. Guests include Antonio Guterres, High Commissioner for Refugees, United Nations; Neal Keny-Guyer, CEO, Mercy Corps; Olara Otunnu, President, Uganda People's Congress; President, LBL Foundation for Children; and Gayle Smith, Special Assistant to the President and Senior Director, National Security Council.
