Within the IZA/FCDO GLM|LIC Programme, a special call of interest on the effect of COVID-19 in low-income countries was launched in 2020.

In this online meeting a subset of the funded projects with a focus on mothers and women in African countries will be presented. Each presentation will be followed by a short input on the policy perspective in that country.
