Combatting COVID-19 in Africa: Lessons Learned Series Volume 5: Financial Impact Assessments

This case study, part of the Lesson Learned Series by African Ministers' Council on Water (AMCOW) and Water for Africa Through Leadership and Institutional Support (WALIS), highlights how two USAID projects (WALIS and WASH-FIN) supported African water service providers to assess the financial impact of COVID-19 response measures in Zambia and Kenya. 

The case study is also available in the following languages:
