For the past decade, foreign investments in land and agriculture (for mining, logging, infrastructure, agro-industries, and conservation purposes) have increased around the world, with Africa being a continent of particular focus.
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 seeks to understand how governments and citizen groups have organized responses to the COVID-19 crisis, and the social, political, and institutional dynamics that shaped responses in Argentina, Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, Guatemala, and Mexico.
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”.
