In response to the current restricted movement caused by the COVID-19, Tana presents a paper pooling our experiences with remote forms of working in development. Its main conclusion is that much development work remains feasible but it’s approach may need adaptation and flexibility. The experiences from working in conflict environments where movement is often restricted demonstrate that this adaptation is possible. What is needed is a methodology relying more on local capacities, enhanced use of remote validation techniques and using the online communications and survey platforms now available. The lessons learned provide insights into new climate friendly ways of working post COVID-19. You can read the full working paper here.
