The webinar forms part of the activities of the Response and Recovery: Mobilising Financial Resources for development in the time of COVID-19 project. While non-technical in character, the discussion at the webinar and the materials made available online offer rigorous, state-of-the-art insights about the macro-financial limits to growth and development.
What is expected from this webinar is, in succinct terms:
- An open and realistic discussion among policy-makers and scholars about economic policy alternatives ahead;
- An exploration of the possibilities to strengthen mechanisms for global and regional coordination, and especially South-South cooperation, which could serve as the basis for policy action by developing countries operating in an uneven world economy.
