Pandemic Can Hit Hard Rural Areas
Fri, Apr 10, 2020

Due to lack of functional and effective local body infrastructure in Pakistan, it seems that the government is failing to reach out and providing relief to poor and marginalised communities, especially in the rural areas.

Therefore, experts are right to expect that the next wave of the pandemic in Pakistan would hit the rural areas. However, in order to protect the agricultural workers and the rural economy, the federal government must ensure effective coordination through Council of Common Interest (CCI) and ensure preparedness at tehsil and union council levels.

This was the verdict of the online policy dialogue named “Rethinking Development amidst COVID-19 Crisis” organised by the Sustainable Development Policy Institute (SDPI).
