As the International Organization for Public-Private Cooperation, the World Economic Forum has been charged by the World Health Organization to accelerate multi-stakeholder action to help combat coronavirus.
The COVID Social Sector Mobilization Platforms aims to bring together leading organizations and actors from civil society, social innovators and the philanthropic community to respond to the immediate crisis and shape the medium-term policy and action that will be needed post-crisis.
The COVID Social Sector Mobilization platform will focus on four priorities:
1. Mobilizing a collaborative response between the social sector, governments and business.
2. Generating COVID-related support for civil society organizations around the world.
3. Influencing policy through concrete recommendations and evidence-based knowledge.
4. Identifying opportunities for investments and funding on systems-changing interventions.
