The human and economic toll of the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic is scaling rapidly across the world. The impact in less developed economies with weaker health systems and institutions could be devastating.
Local action, driven by government but with a strong partnership of companies and civil society organizations will be vital to respond to the immediate crisis and develop plans for longer-term recovery and resilience. This includes the urgent need for concerted on-the-ground action to support the most vulnerable people.
This live webinar will deep-dive into the action taking place on the ground in Kenya, including through the National Business Compact on COVID-19 (https://www.covid19businessresponse.ke/), and draw out lessons for other countries.
