Online Event: Monday, November 29, 12:00 PM EST

Posted November 22, 2021


Almost two years since the beginning of the pandemic, Latin America and the Caribbean is showing signs of recovery, with some key indicators such as jobs on an upward swing.

However, this recovery seems uneven and there is still a long way to go before the region can fully recuperate from the health and economic crises unleashed by COVID-19.

Join us on November 29 at 12 PM EST to find out more about the current state of the region as we release Phase 2 of the 2021 LAC High-Frequency Phone Survey, jointly done between The World Bank and UNDP, which measures progress in six crucial areas: labor markets, income and food security, education, gender, health and digital and finance.
