Global responses to a global pandemic series: Sharing Asian responses to COVID-19


As the global community for investors for impact, AVPA, AVPN, EVPA & IVPC are working together to share lessons from across the world. These short webinars will share examples from differing regions to similar challenges related to COVID-19.

  • Exploring the diverse roles grant makers can have in responding to the pandemic
  • Share examples of responses
  • Hear from voices on the ground

An opportunity to start conversations and share peer learning with a global audience which can be continued over the coming months. Hear practitioner stories from 4 continents.
