Urban Poverty is Worsening, How Do We Address It?

The pandemic has impacted all of us, but it has hit low-income families harder. And while the government has stepped in, there are still gaps in their efforts. So how do we close these gaps & address urban poverty going forward?

Roshan Kanesan discusses on this edition of The Breakfast Grille with Tengku Aira from the UNFPA and Dr Muhammed Abdul Khalid of DM Analytics. DM Analytics was the lead researcher of the Families on the Edge report, jointly commissioned by UNICEF and UNFPA.

Dr Muhammed is a former Khazanah Research Institute director and was economic adviser to former Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad,
