Cenfri hosted an Africa digital dialogues series in partnership with the Digital Frontiers Institute (DFI) to explore the impact of COVID-19 on livelihoods in Africa. The three-part series focused on the impact on migrants and remittance receivers, informal small businesses and gig workers who we see as some of the most vulnerable.
The first webinar took place on Wednesday, 25 March, from 15h00 – 16h30 SAST | 1300 – 14h30 GMT.
It explored the impact of COVID-19 on foreign migrants and remittance senders in Africa as well as potential responses from governments, development partners and the private sector.
It was an interactive format with short presentations from the panel followed by a Q&A session to stimulate ideas around appropriate responses. Questions were sent ahead of time to firstname.lastname@example.org to ensure that we addressed them during the webinar.
