Responses to the COVID-19 crisis: government policy, impact businesses and the social economy
The webinar assesses the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and how it is causing enormous economic challenges for SMEs in ACP countries. Where those businesses are driven to make a positive social and/or environmental impact, often delivering crucial services within our communities (e.g. health, education), the potential impact is both economic (e.g. putting jobs at risk) as well as social. The webinar gives the opportunity to take inspiration and learn lessons from around the world, providing a framework to think about responses to COVID-19 with practical examples of responses led by governments, SocialEnterprises, Impact businesses and the social economy.
