Averting Catastrophe | Esther Duflo & Achim Steiner

June 2, 2020

The world’s poorest countries may not be able to respond to the pandemic with financial rescue packages, healthcare and other support - leading to warnings of dire economic fallout, infection rates and even mass starvation. So what can be done? And how can we be sure that we are doing the right thing?

 

Ben Chu (The Independent) and Lizzy Burden (The Telegraph) speak to Esther Duflo (Nobel Prize, 2019) and Achim Steiner (United Nations Development Programme).
