Global Pandemic, Local Risks: The Development and Trajectory of the COVID-19 Pandemic in Senegal

Researching the effects and management of the COVID-19 pandemic in Dakar, Senegal, as compared to other cities in low- and middle-income African countries, Fadé tracks the impact of the pandemic on Dakar’s urban development initiatives. Did the pandemic place a hold on the city’s infrastructural development projects or did it expose the need for more disaster and risk prevention and preparation across varying sectors of Dakar and other cities, such as those in Egypt and South Africa? These findings reveal the impact of the COVID-19  global disaster by looking at the success and failures of social, economic, and community development factors on a local level.
