The Nudge Foundation is hosting charcha2020, a platform for thinkers, researchers, practitioners, policymakers, philanthropists and community leaders to discuss the challenges of surviving as a country in a post-COVID world.

While countries continue to combat the COVID-19's threat to people's health, there is another imminent impact on the access to financial services and the ability to survive in the post-COVID world.

The event hosts are Piramal Swasthya, NSDC, Central Square Foundation, MSDF, WaterAid and Omidyar Network. Some of the key speakers include: Nobel Laureate Dr Kailash Satyarthi (Founder, Bachpan Bachao); Nobel Laureate Dr Muhammad Yunus (Founder, Grameen); Rajiv Kumar (Vice-Chairman, NITI Aayog); a panel of leading economists including Kaushik Basu and Justin Lin Yifu both former chief economists of the World Bank, and Dr S.
