Poverty Dimensions of COVID-19 for Girls in Low- and Middle-Income Countries (LMICs)

On Thursday 11th February 2021, the Bristol Poverty Institute (BPI) held its second webinar in our series exploring the impacts of COVID-19 on those experiencing, and/or at risk of falling into, poverty. This webinar focussed on how issues related to gender and poverty intersect in Low- and Middle-Income Countries (LMICs) with a particular focus on girls, and how the global coronavirus pandemic has impacted on existing inequalities as well as potentially exposing new risks and challenges.
