Economic inclusion and COVID-19 response
The ongoing COVID-19 Pandemic is not a great equalizer–the poor and vulnerable are far more seriously impacted. The third webinar in PEI's economic inclusion series explored how economic inclusion programs can help the extreme poor and vulnerable increase incomes, build assets and grow their resilience in the face of the current pandemic, and its economic aftershocks.
This interactive webinar, with simultaneous translation in Spanish and English, discussed some unfolding adaptations and early priorities in economic inclusion programs in response to COVID-19. The session featured first-hand country experiences from Bangladesh, Ethiopia and Panama.
