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 , Global Health, Sustainable Business & Finance, and Technology. 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.
