On 22 April, the first session of the webinar series on ‘access and protection’ brought together a panel of experts to discuss the basic concepts related to access and humanitarian protection, how they relate to each other, the basic dilemmas and challenges faced in practice, and how to approach these challenges. The session also addressed some of the ways in which we can draw lessons from past situations to how we approach the current COVID-19 operational environment.
