Crisis as Catalyst: Introducing Urban Transport Reforms in the Philippines Amidst the Global Pandemic


By John T. Sidel

Crisis as Catalyst traces urban and active transport reforms in the Philippines, which rapidly grew due to the transportation restrictions imposed during the Covid-19 pandemic. John T. Sidel, professor at the London School of Economics and Political Science, delves deeper into how Coalitions for Change and the Move As One coalition explored the possibilities of alternative transport mobilities, pursued reform opportunities and continued to nurture a network of mobility advocates within and outside the policy arena.

This paper offers insights on coalition building and policy advocacy and how crises make way for positive change.
