A content bank on coronavirus

 

The COVID-19 pandemic is seeing overwhelming response from grassroots organisations, donors, multilateral agencies. As a part of its humanitarian response, Arghyam reached out to several organisations working on the ground to understand their most urgent needs and we realised that along with relief material the one thing that was glaringly absent was the right information to disseminate in appropriate regional languages/ dialects. 

 

A rapid assessment and conversations with other organisations led us to a rich set of material already created by other organisations. The Content Bank is a collation of context-relevant COVID-19 resources produced by several organizations in more than 20 Indian languages. Scroll down below the table for help on how to use it.

 

This content bank is also available in Hindi

 

Using this table:

Sustainable mobility amid COVID-19 pandemic
There is a need to address the wider challenge of development pattern and infrastructure provision to deal with the issue of sustainable mobility.
Posted on 01 Dec, 2020 10:19 PM

Most of the travel demand in the Indian cities is met by the non-motorized and public transport systems i.e. low carbon modes of transport. With the growing urbanization and income levels along with the degraded infrastructure to support the low carbon modes, the dependency on personal motorized vehicles will increase soon.

Though during the COVID-19 lockdown, people’s interest for non-motorised transport has witnessed a rise, the lack of infrastructure such as separate cycle tracks etc. among other reasons is likely to adversely affect this. (Image: Needpix)
