WEBINAR: The Macroeconomic Impact of COVID-19 in Africa

Join researchers and policymakers from South Africa and Nigeria to explore policy dimensions of COVID-19 in these two economies and contemplate the way forward to successful sustainable and inclusive economic recovery.

More than a year after the height of the global coronavirus pandemic, researchers, businesses, and policymakers are keen to fully understand the impact of the pandemic on our economies. Moreover, unpacking the long-term implications and policy responses are critical to successfully navigate the economic crises.

This webinar will share empirical evidence of the impact of COVID-19 on Africa’s two largest economies, South Africa, and Nigeria. Researchers from the COVID-19 Macroeconomic Policy Research in Africa (CoMPRA) project will unpack their findings.
