Virtual Event – Addressing Urban Inequities: Shaping an Inclusive Pandemic Recovery in Asia

Event: Monday, April 4, 2022, Bangkok

Since 2020, The Asia Foundation has been working to understand and illustrate the multidimensional impact of Covid-19 on disadvantaged communities in Asian cities. This webinar aims to build on this work by facilitating a forward-looking discussion with experts on framing key priority areas and actions needed to create a more inclusive and sustainable post-pandemic world.

The webinar included a brief presentation of the key findings from our latest GovAsia issue, From Hanoi to Hyderabad – The Impact of Covid-19 on Women and Marginalised Groups in Asian Cities followed by a panel discussion with key experts on (re)building more inclusive cities.
