Is 2020 Over? Responding to Multiple Disasters Amid COVID-19 and Climate Change

Host Organization: Center for Disaster Philanthropy


It feels like 2020 has lasted 15 years. The Center for Disaster Philanthropy (CDP) team started following COVID-19 in January while we were also responding to the Australian wildfires and the earthquakes in Puerto Rico. The beginning of the year is usually a slower time, but 2020 began as it meant to go on: with continual disasters all existing within the context of the global pandemic. It has also been a year when climate change has given us urgent reminders of its impact on disasters.

In this webinar, the CDP team will reflect on lessons learned, challenges and opportunities presented by different disasters – particularly wildfires, hurricanes and the derecho – and how COVID-19 has framed the response. We will share insights from our response to the global pandemic and how climate change has affected the disaster landscape.

Grantmakers and donors will hear about some of the fantastic organizations doing critical work on the ground and how they can support response and recovery in ways that prioritize communities of color and other vulnerable populations during these challenging times.
