COVID-19

The COVID-19 pandemic is causing people around the world to question how this virus will affect the many public and private systems that we all use. In response, a new series of short podcasts titled “Viewpoints on Resilient and Equitable Responses to the Pandemic” has been launched by the Center for Urban and Regional Studies at The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

We hope this collection of viewpoints will elevate the visibility of creative state and local solutions to the underlying equity and resilience challenges that COVID-19 is highlighting and exacerbating.

We’ve asked experts at UNC-Chapel Hill to discuss effective and equitable responses to the pandemic on subjects ranging from low-wage hospitality work, retooling manufacturing processes, supply chain complications, housing, transportation, the environment, and food security, among others.
