ICOLMA: The impact of Covid19 on livelihoods, mobility and accessibility of marginalized groups

The IPS is leading a research project titled “The impact of Covid-19 on livelihoods, mobility and accessibility of marginalized groups" (ICOLMA). The research seeks to develop a more holistic understanding of how the cities of Dortmund, São Paulo and Cape Town have been affected differently by the pandemic, government policies and the diverse coping mechanisms that have been adopted particularly by the marginalized groups. Funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) under the ‘Transatlantic Platform Recovery, Renewal and Resilience in a Post Pandemic World’ research body, the overall objective of the research is to advance knowledge on mitigation of negative societal effects of the Covid-19 pandemic to support recovery and renewal after the pandemic.
