High Level Policy Dialogue on Inequality: Developments and Policy Challenges in the Post-COVID Environment

Virtual Event

September 20-21, 2022

The COVID-19 pandemic has caused an acute health and economic crisis, exacerbating income inequality all over the world. The food and fuel price shock following the Ukraine war is adding to the difficulties. These shocks and developments are particularly worrisome for sub-Saharan Africa, one of the most unequal regions pre-pandemics and the least capable to cushion the effects of the crisis on the most vulnerable. Our IMF Policy Dialogue on Inequality will focus on these latest developments; the potential policy responses; and their implementation in a very complex and tight policy environment. The event will have a focus on Sub-Saharan Africa, with discussions about the Latin America responses.


Save the date and join us on September 20 and 21. The event will include remarks and presentations, together with a policy dialogue in which representatives from 5 African and 2 Latin American countries will share their experiences (Senegal, the Minister for Digitalization for Togo, Rwanda and Mozambique; Brazil and others).
