Recovery: NextBillion’s COVID-19 Series

As an open forum for the development through enterprise sector, NextBillion has been chronicling COVID-19’s impact on emerging markets business since the pandemic first began. Now, as a vaccine promises to gradually bring an end to this dark period, many industries, enterprises and development organizations are moving from responding to the immediate public health and economic crises, to a longer-term effort to “build back better.”

Our “Recovery” series – sponsored by Acceso and Kiva – focuses on how businesses and the communities they serve in low- and middle-income countries are working to manage the pandemic’s ongoing effects, while building their ability to navigate future threats. It highlights the new challenges and innovative solutions involved in this recovery phase, aiming to support enterprises, NGOs and funders as they work to convert this unprecedented crisis into an equally historic opportunity for greater resilience.

We invite you to check back regularly for new content in this series. And if you or your business or organization would like to discuss your own recovery-focused initiatives or share insights related to these efforts, contact our editor to explore potential coverage.
