Canada creates resource hub to assist development partners with COVID-19 response

The government of Canada has developed a new resource hub to share up to date information on the COVID-19 response with development partners who have projects funded by Global Affairs Canada's International Development Assistance Program. 

The hub provides detailed guidance on how partners will be supported in coordinating and paying for the repatriation of international development workers and their families to their home countries, mandated self-isolation for workers, and event cancellations and postponements.

The hub also gives information on extensions for annual reports for ongoing development projects and for calls for proposals. 

Given the evolving nature of the pandemic both in Canada and globally, partners are encouraged to routinely consult the hub for updated information.
