    India’s COVID-19 crisis: ‘There is no normal’

    India’s COVID-19 crisis: ‘There is no normal’

    Bad news is the only news that Manuela de Souza, an IFC communications officer in Goa, India, hears these days.
    Since a highly transmissible second wave of COVID-19 infections began coursing through India, causing a record number of deaths, de Souza has watched the virus wreak havoc across the country—including her home state of Goa. In an audio story from IFC, de Souza describes how real-time messaging has changed the nature of the national response to the crisis.
    Technology also makes it possible for de Souza to keep in touch with friends and former colleagues in Delhi and Mumbai, cities where she used to live and work. She checked in with them recently to find out how their businesses and industries have responded to the stresses of the past year. 

    In a conversation with IFC’s John Donnelly, De Souza dives into what it’s like on the ground in India today and how businesses are trying to stay and become resilient.

    Racism at Home and Abroad: A Conversation Between Friends

    Racism at Home and Abroad: A Conversation Between Friends

    Two long-time friends, one African-American and the other a U.S.-based Ugandan national, share their experiences of institutional racism on two continents and exchange ideas about how to handle racial bias in international development.
    In a conversation recorded earlier this month, Jude Kearney, managing director and co-founder of Kearney Africa Legal Advisors LLC, and Emmanuel Nyirinkindi, IFC’s Director of Transaction Advisory Services, spoke about their personal experiences with racism at home and abroad. Both Kearney and Nyirinkindi have worked in several African countries, including Kenya, Nigeria, South Africa, and Uganda. During this wide-ranging discussion, they explore how the protests in the U.S. are playing out in African nations and what the international development sector can do about its own racial bias.
