The Financial Times reports on findings from a new survey of an estimated 100,000 people in Burkina Faso, Bangladesh, Colombia, Ghana, Kenya, Rwanda, Sierra Leone, Nepal, and the Philippines between April and June last year. As Edward Miguel, one of the study's co-authors describes, the results are "dire," with already vulnerable households experiencing “steep drops in employment and income" and "a sharp rise in food insecurity." Note: Article may be gated.
