CDC Group partners with Devex for web series on building resilience in times of disruption

CDC Group has partnered with Devex to host a series of virtual events exploring how we build and support resilient economies and societies that can recover from the COVID-19 crisis.  

The global crisis provoked by the COVID-19 pandemic has shone a spotlight on the importance of resilient economies and societies in a way no global institution has ever managed to do.  

The pandemic has highlighted the fragility of many jobs – and markets – across the globe and turned everyone’s attention to the importance of cooperation beyond borders and politics. 

Throughout the three-part leadership series, expert panellists will look at how the DFI model – which supports economic stability by providing long-term capital to the private sector – can help businesses adapt and become resilient in the face of global challenges. 

Speakers will also discuss how we can move the needle on climate change and develop environment resilience post-COVID-19. 

Confirmed panellists for the first event include Devex President and Editor-in-Chief Raj Kumar, CDC Group’s Deputy CIO for Catalyst Strategies Yasemin LamyJean-Paul Adam Director of Technology, Climate Change and Natural Resources for the U.N. Economic Commission for Africa, and Big Basket Co-Founder Vipul Parekh. 

You can find out more about the series, which begins Wednesday 13 May, and registerhere for the first event.
