Congrats on setting this up Adam.

Right now there is a global challenge, Covid-19, facing us, and unfortunately it does not have a global response. Probably the most important thing to do for sustainability at the moment is for Earth to successfully overcome this challenge.

What can we do to nurture, cajole, facilitate and ensure a global response to Covid-19?

I look forward to collaborating with all of you!

Greetings. First let's live hormoneusly with mother nature??. Secondly, we shouldn't try to conquer her. Last but the least, research thoroughly about Covid-19 and try to get clues with past Pandemic. Then only we can find the correct vaccine.
This we can infer once mankind able to get Martian Rock Samples and analyse how the life in Planet Mars was wiped off? This research Will through more light about relationship with Novel Corona virus and it's relationship on life!

Given that many countries don't even have a coordinated national response (ie. different states have their own plans and policies), I struggle to see how we're going to get a global response. Basically, it's all too political.

Furthermore, a global response to a pandemic would presumably need to be coordinated by the World Health Organisation (WHO). However, the US intends to defund WHO rather than expanding its role and capabilities.

I think the most that can be hoped for is that we learn some lessons that could be used to create a framework for global cooperation that could be applied to future pandemics.

I also believe it's critical that we do whatever we can to ensure that COVID-19 stimulus money is spent on creating a green and resilient economy, instead of propping-up the industries which are going to create future global calamities.

I hear there has been an unprecedented level of international cooperation when it comes to developing a vaccine.

I think Alison Chan identified the key impediment to global cooperation when she said that "it's all too political". There's also the fact that it's still unclear what the best approach is and different countries are likely to need different strategies. For example, what is possible in China might not be acceptable in a Western democracy. I therefore tend to agree that the best we can hope for is some international agreement on how we will handle future pandemics.

Firstly, public health had been neglected in climate-related research for a long time. Even though there is no direct evidence showing COVID19 is caused by climate change, it is crucial to take public health seriously in future adaptation planning.

Secondly, many temporary measures taken during the pandemic can definitely be extended or even make them into new norms, such as working-from-home policies. It certainly also depends on the type of work/industry we are talking about. But most of the white-collar jobs are feasible to do that. Singapore has already used public parking lots to grow food, in order to expand urban agriculture.

Those are my humble opinions for your reference and further discussions.
