WIDER COVID-19 Webinar Series image UNDP BangladeshAt UNU-WIDER we’re responding and adapting to the coronavirus pandemic. This has meant reorienting our research focus and changing how we facilitate knowledge exchange.  We are making the most of the technology available and are pleased to launch a new online webinar series.

The webinar series features a line-up of eminent researchers and development specialists to present new research on the implications they foresee of COVID-19 for global development efforts and the economic and social impacts for the Global South.
