COVID-19 has caused lots damage to human’s health and world economy. To come up with potential coping strategies to the impact COVID-19 causes on global supply chains, this research report uses the case of Bangladesh garment industry and analyses 235 answers to the questionnaire. By analysing the relationship between CSR and consumers’ purchase behaviour, gender and identity difference in CSR perception and legal restriction to CSR, the potential coping strategies can be concluded as: each section in global supply chain should pay attention to CSR and consumers’ purchase behaviour form various perspectives like genders and occupations; governments should step in and make laws to set legal restrictions on the application of CSR.
