Sam Worthington on the pandemic's financial impact on NGOs



Members of the largest alliance of U.S.-based international NGOs have laid off or furloughed 3,000 employees, according to Sam Worthington, CEO of InterAction. That is just an early indication of what significant challenges the international NGO sector will face as the COVID-19 pandemic continues, he said.


In an interview with Devex President and Editor-in-Chief Raj Kumar, Worthington also discusses how international NGOs are responding to the global health crisis, the implications for aid worker security and jobs, NGO mergers and acquisitions, and how NGO executives can best survive the economic fallout from the coronavirus.
