Special COVID series: "How can we adopt a gender lens to social protection programs in the face of the COVID-19 crisis?"


Dear Colleagues,

Please join us for “How can we adopt a gender lens to social protection programs in the face of the COVID-19 crisis?”, an online Webinar taking place on July 23rd, 2020 from 10:00 AM – 11:30 AM (EDT).

COVID-19 has become an unprecedented global crisis. The pandemic and its associated economic crisis have exposed deep structural inequalities around the world, with disproportionate effects on women and girls. This webinar will discuss current issues around COVID-19 and social protection programs in the Global South. A diverse panel of experts from the worlds of international development research and practice will discuss research priorities and possible policy solutions to address COVID-19 and girls’ education.
