Since the outbreak of COVID-19 in Africa, the Economic, Social and Cultural Council of the African Union and the African Development Bank Civil Society and Community Engagement Division have initiated a series of webinars to raise awareness, sensitize and empower African citizens and civil society organizations (CSOs) on adequate responses to the challenge within this COVID-19 context.
This session discusses the value added by CSOs in responding to the social and economic impact of COVID-19 and highlights innovative interventions from African CSOs at the forefront of the fight against the spread of the virus.
