UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has warned that a humanitarian catastrophe is ’unfolding before our eyes’ in Ethiopia’s Tigray region. The focus of this discussion is to understand the compounding challenges of the conflict including the humanitarian issues, gender based violence, displacement and impacts of climate and COVID, which continue to threaten millions of people, in particular women and children.
Panel participants contribute their analysis and perspectives on how these challenges can begin to be addressed to move towards overcoming the conflict and towards peace.
