Geneva Solutions is a new journalistic platform dedicated to covering Genève internationale. We will be launching our website (genevasolutions.news) along with a daily newsletter in August 2020, covering daily news on Peace & Humanitarian, Climate Change, Global Health, Sustainable Business & Finance, and Internet Governance. In the midst of the Coronavirus pandemic we have opted for an early-release of our Global Health news stream, which starting April 2020 provides insights into how the institutions and people in Geneva are responding to this crisis.

US$ 10 billion and still going has been pledged by global philanthropy to combat the pandemic. Private generosity is on the rise. But while it can inspire state actors, it cannot replace them.
