Invitation to Urban October Session on Gender & Social Inclusion in Surabaya Development during COVID-19

The impact of COVID-19 has highlighted existing inequalities in our society, affecting women, children, elderly, and people with disabilities disproportionately, especially in terms of adequate, accessible, and secure housing for all. As an illustration, the number of reported gender-based violence during partial lockdown or PSBB and the number of people that fell into poverty has increased during the pandemic.
