The Coronavirus pandemic is the defining global health crisis of our time. Since its emergence late last year, the virus has spread to every continent except Antarctica. Cases are rising daily in Africa and South America, and Europe has taken over as the epicentre of the disease and more cases are now being reported every day than in China at the height of its epidemic.
The Lab approached Tambula with the idea to create an online portal for consumers who desired items from the market and their usual street vendors at a time when these vendors had been taken off the streets due to COVID-19 restrictions.
UNDP’s support to Namibian front-line workers ensures that they are equipped to consistently track the pandemic as they execute the various responsibilities at the Emergency Operating Centre.
To ensure the survival of Namibian Community Based Natural Resource Management entities, the facility will also support the Medium to long-term recovery and resilience measures.
The UNDP Namibia Accelerator Lab partnered with Tambula, a local online shop to provide informal traders with a digital commercial platform to reach more clients
