Document: Urban Planning Response for Covid 2020

As the first phase (21 days) of the COVID-19 lockdown ends and an additional fortnight is imposed, the State of Maharashtra and the Union of India need to revisit their current policies and responses. Over the last two weeks information coming from surveys from low income neighbourhoods in Mumbai indicate the lack of planning and management that ought to have been in place by now. This document provides an action plan for the city of Mumbai that can help the government respond in more equitable and effective manner over the next few weeks in the effort to overcome the pandemic.
