Title: Review 2020 : Energising the Green Economic Recovery
In 2020, progress towards SDG7 and related SDGs were in jeopardy due to the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. The situation had a strong impact in East Africa in particular, whilst worldwide many businesses feared for their survival and a large number of jobs were at risk. Smaller companies have been more severely affected, such as distributors. Livelihoods were endangered, as the economic and social crisis coincided. Whilst response mechanisms on loan basis were relatively quick to emerge, the uptake of these were not possible for smaller companies in particular.
Green Economic Recovery Instruments against this background EnDev reacted quickly with the roll-out of a dedicated set of Green Economic Recovery Instruments that were able to:
- quickly re-direct existing operations towards immediate COVID responses; and
- channel new funds effectively and rapidly towards the key sector players in need.
