Our international development podcast that discusses the global impact of Covid-19. We talk to economists, practitioners and policymakers across the world to get their insights on how nations are navigating the recovery.
In the first episode of the new series of our Policy in Pandemics podcast, our Chief Economist (Acting), Stevan Lee talks to Selim Raihan, Professor of Economics at the University of Dhaka and Executive Director at SANEM, about the economic impacts of the Covid-19 crisis in Bangladesh – and the Government’s response.
In episode two, Stevan explores the economic impact of Covid-19 in Kenya with economists Wangari Muikia and John Nyangi.
Stevan chats to public finance expert Nohman Ishtiaq in the third episode, highlighting the story of Covid-19 in Pakistan and the complex route to a position where the Government’s policy options might be rather limited.
