The fourth Center for Effective Global Action (CEGA), Innovations for Poverty Action (IPA), and Joint Data Center on Forced Displacement (JDC) joint webinar on forcibly displaced people in the Global South, and efforts by NGOs and governments to support them, took place on Tuesday, June 2, 2021.
The COVID-19 pandemic had wide-reaching economic consequences across the globe, leaving vulnerable populations such as the forcibly displaced in an even more precarious situation than before the pandemic. On June 2, Ceren Baysan, Sandra Rozo, Stefano Caria, and Thomas Ginn shared insights on the integration, targeting, and economic wellbeing of forcibly displaced populations during COVID-19. The event featured evidence from several countries, including Colombia, Jordan, and Turkey. Bilal Siddiqi moderated.
In addition to discussing their findings and participating in a Q&A session, panelists also discussed the challenges of collecting data with displaced populations during the COVID-19 pandemic and the impacts these challenges had on their research.
