Webinar Presentation - VOICES of Africans affected by the COVID-19 crisis: Experiences on the impacts of COVID-19 on the incomes, livelihoods and wellbeing

Slide presentation of the webinar held on 1 June 2021. In this first webinar of the African Dialogue on COVID-19 and the Future of Social Protection series, we heard directly from children, workers in the informal economy, and older people from different African countries on how the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted their lives, livelihoods, access to education and wellbeing. These voices were contextualized with evidence on the impacts of the pandemic on various population groups across the life-course and in different African countries. The webinar further provided space for direct engagement with the speakers through a question-and-answer session.
