SDC invites you to join the Webinar on “Responding to COVID-19 and saving jobs in non-farm sectors: experiences from two SDC projects”. We will hear about first experiences from projects in Bangladesh and Moldova and how they adapted their strategies to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic. From Bangladesh, we will hear how the project is reorienting its strategy to support jobs in the ready-made garment sector. From Moldova, we hear how the project supports partners, for example, in setting up an e-commerce system for food or online trainings for ICT skills.
Below you find some additional information on the two projects:
