Covid-19 Response

The global COVID-19 pandemic has had a severe impact on the economies of developing countries – including those in the African, Caribbean and Pacific region. To cushion the resulting economic crisis and its consequence, and to support the recovery process, countries need to carefully balance their measures. Therefore, a sound business environment and investment climate become even more crucial. As a special response on the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, the ICR Facility has set up online events to support public and private stakeholders in mitigating these impacts particularly in the area of Business Environment Reform and Investment Climate.
