RESICODI

Mitigating the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic through digitalisation

In response to the global crisis caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, the European Commission and the High Representative announced an EU global response strategy to fight the pandemic in April 2020.

Part of the EU COVID-19 emergency response is the Action “Resilience to COVID-19 through Digitalisation” (RESICODI). This Action is co-funded by the European Union and the German Federal Ministry of Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) and is jointly implemented by Enabel and GIZ (Team Europe Approach).

OUR ACTIVITIES

The RESICODI project aims to mitigate the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic in Eastern and Southern Africa.

1Support

Supporting digital solutions to foster quality and continuation of education services.

APPROACH

In a Team Europe spirit, GIZ and Enabel have joined forces to leverage existing projects to ensure an integrated and sustainable response to COVID-19. RESICODI thus builds on ongoing initiatives implemented by both agencies:

GIZ is building on the established BACKUP Initiative to provide technical and financial support to African partners working on digital solutions for basic education services.

Enabel is strengthening successful Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) and health projects to facilitate COVID-19 resilience.

The project works in Botswana, Burundi, Democratic Republic of Congo, Madagascar, Malawi, Namibia, Rwanda and Zambia.
