More than a year after the height of the global coronavirus pandemic, researchers, businesses, and policymakers are keen to fully understand the impact of the pandemic on our economies. Moreover, unpacking the long-term implications and policy responses are critical to successfully navigate the economic crises.
To this end SAIIA and CSEA organised a webinar on August 11, 2021 to share empirical evidence of the impact of Covid-19 on Africa’s two largest economies, South Africa, and Nigeria. Researchers from the Covid-19 Macroeconomic Policy Research in Africa (CoMPRA) project were joined by policymakers from the respective countries to further explore policy dimensions of Covid-19 in these two economies and contemplate the way forward to successful sustainable and inclusive economic recovery.
