COVID-19 is threatening the health and economic security of communities around the world, with dire implications for those living in poverty. As the pandemic unfolds, CEGA is committed to sharing practical insights that support evidence-based responses in the Global South.
On June 10th, CEGA Executive Director Carson Christiano moderated a panel including faculty co-Directors Ted Miguel (UC Berkeley) and Josh Blumenstock (UC Berkeley), along with affiliates Supreet Kaur (UC Berkeley) and Paul Niehaus (UC San Diego, GiveDirectly). Panelists discussed emerging and completed research that shed light on the economic toll of the pandemic, as well as the optimal design and delivery of cash transfer programs. We hope these insights will help inform government and NGO decision-making in the face of what could quickly become a protracted crisis.
COVID-19 in the Global South: Economic Impacts and Recovery was a part of the Berkeley Conversations series.
