Webinar: The Socioeconomic Impacts of COVID-19November 11, 2020
The COVID-19 pandemic has upended lives and livelihoods around the world. Developing countries are especially vulnerable, where the crisis has the potential to create lasting damage to social and economic infrastructure.
Since May 2020, CESO has been conducting research into the socioeconomic impacts of COVID-19 on our 20 partner countries. In this webinar hosted by Sara Awad, Gender Equality and Women’s Economic Empowerment Advisor; Alexandra Konn, University of Toronto Master of Global Affairs Candidate; and CESO Country Representatives Elhadji Diouf and Natalia Naranjo, you can learn more about these important research findings. Our program experts dive into the pandemic’s impact on global tourism, agribusiness, nutrition, agroforestry, gender equality and the environment, and emphasize the importance of innovation to find opportunities for a brighter future.
