HCP QES Post-Doctoral Fellow, Percy Toriro, publishes new article on the impact of COVID-19 on the informal sector in Harare, Zimbabwe. The article examines the changing typology of informal trade under the lockdown conditions. A key finding of the study is that under a restricted trading environment, the means for carrying bulky stock and a quick get-away is giving advantage to traders on wheels. Bringing wares to sites and traveling back home now requires own transport. The well-to-do traders are replacing poor vendors.
