This webinar is part of IPA's RECOVR Webinar Series: Bringing Evidence to COVID-19 Policy Responses in the Global South. Together with our partners, we are using this series to rapidly share what we are learning with the policy and research community to support evidence-informed response efforts.

On June 2, 2021, the Center for Effective Global Action (CEGA), Innovations for Poverty Action (IPA), and the Joint Data Center on Forced Displacement (JDC) held the fourth webinar in a mini-series focused on the impacts of COVID-19 on forcibly displaced people in the Global South, and efforts by NGOs and governments to support them.
The COVID-19 pandemic has had far-reaching economic consequences across the globe, leaving vulnerable populations—like the forcibly displaced—in an even more precarious situation than they were before. On June 2, Ceren Baysan, Sandra Rozo, Stefano Caria, and Thomas Ginn shared recent insights on the economic well-being and integration of forcibly displaced populations in Colombia, Jordan, Turkey, and a handful of other countries in the context of COVID-19. In addition to discussing their findings and participating in a Q&A session, panelists discussed the challenges of data collection with displaced populations during the COVID-19 pandemic and the impacts these challenges have had on their research. Bilal Siddiqi, CEGA Director of Research, moderated the event.
This webinar is part of IPA's RECOVR Webinar Series: Bringing Evidence to COVID-19 Policy Responses in the Global South, CEGA's Webinar Series on COVID-19 and Global Poverty, and the JDC's Event Series on Forced Displacement.
