PEP webinar series: Lessons on Covid-19 crisis policy responses

Partnership for Economic Policy (PEP) is hosting a series of online roundtable discussions on ‘Lessons for more effective and inclusive policy responses to the Covid-19 crisis in the Global South’ from November 2021 to February 2022.

Local researchers and national government officers will share and discuss findings from their projects on the effectiveness of early or potential public policy responses to mitigate the impacts of the Covid-19 crisis, particularly for the most vulnerable populations in the Global South. PEP supported these projects under CORE and the Rapid Response initiative.

The discussions in the series are:

  • 16 November 2021: The importance of targeting beneficiaries in Covid-19 crisis policy responses. Find out more and register.
