COVID-19, rural poverty, and inequality in forest regions
The Seminar will focus on more effectively understanding and addressing the impact of COVID-19 on rural poverty and inequality, within the context of forest-based livelihoods.
The objective of the Seminar is to increase understanding of how the COVID-19 pandemic impacts, and is conditioned by, poverty and inequality, particularly within the context of forest-based livelihoods. Participants will have increased awareness of organizational tools and resources available, and enhanced capacity to analyze the socio-economic and environmental implications of COVID-19, to prepare appropriate policy responses.
