COVID-19 Crisis and the Informal Economy survey
Asiye eTafuleni is involved in a WIEGO-led COVID-19 Crisis and the Informal Economy survey which is being conducted in 12 cities worldwide, with the aim of assessing the impact of the pandemic on informal workers.
Round one was conducted during July and August 2020, where Asiye eTafuleni surveyed informal workers in Durban across three sectors, namely, waste pickers, market traders and street vendors. Below you can access the Durban fact sheet compiled by WIEGO to find out more.
AeT has consulted with a reference group (made up of informal workers), and a dissemination process is underway to ensure there is meaningful engagement with relevant stakeholders in this regard. Part of this process is the development of a ‘street sheet’ (see below) which is tool to enable engagement at street level and via watsapp with our database.
