Book Launch: Tackling a global pandemic in Asian megacities


Japanese Room (401), Level 4, Glyn Davis Building (MSD), Masson Road, Parkville

This book launch marks the culmination of the 16-month project Tackling a Global Pandemic in Asian Megacities.

This international research collaboration has harnessed a regionwide, multi-city, and multi-sectoral perspective to examine the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on informal workers in three South Asian megacities (Dhaka, Hyderabad and Karachi) and two Southeast Asian megacities (Jakarta and Manila).

The project determined how state and city-region level crisis management responses and post-pandemic recovery policies and programs in these five Southeast and South Asian cities can strengthen the urban informal workers’ capacity to bounce back from this global crisis.

The launch will be available in-person and online, please select ticket type when registering. For those attending in-person, refreshments will be provided.
