The COVID-19 pandemic has had a negative impact in the Sahel region of West Africa, which is already facing several protracted crises, including environmental degradation, poverty, conflict, rural exodus, and gender inequality.
This project will not only analyze how young people are affected by COVID-19, it will examine how they can be key actors in the response, mitigation, and evaluation efforts of pandemic policies and actions.
This project aims to assess the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on national economies and determine the effectiveness of current and potential policy responses in 11 developing countries around the world.
This collaborative project will contribute to policies and strategies to address the immediate and longer-term effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on economies, social cohesion, and governance in Benin, Burkina Faso, and South Africa.
The overall objective of this project is to promote the uptake of research findings from the cohort of projects “Combatting sexual and gender-based violence and improving adolescent sexual and reproductive health and rights in West Africa”.
