Helen Keller, the great humanist and disability rights activist, once said, H“Although the world is full of suffering, it is also full of the overcoming of it.” The world has seen a number of adverse situations in terms of natural calamities, war, pandemics, economic crises, terrorist brutality and so on, but every time it has regained normalcy as nature has created resilience in everyone. We have overcome all the problems and challenges in this world of environment in span of times. The new pandemic, Covid-19 has resulted in a dramatic loss of human life worldwide and presents an unprecedented challenge to public health, food systems and the world of work.

Now is the time to develop our resilience together to overcome the intertwined health, social and economic impacts of the pandemic and ensure that the “new normal” is a better one
