IGC India conference: The economic impact of COVID-19 on households

Nearly 84% of Indian households witnessed a decrease in income during the initial lockdown and the months following it. While the well-off can manage, there are grave concerns about how the poor can cope and survive future lockdowns. This webinar explores how households coped with the economic effects of lockdowns, and whether existing and new welfare schemes are effective enough to support households that have lost their livelihoods and face future curbs in economic activity, especially in rural areas.
