Our Covid - 19 Analytics
The policy response for the Covid-19 needs to be evidence and science based : all organisations in the country diagnostics community of practice have been actively producing knowledge tools in order to guide their operations and support policy makers. Because our community also believes that coordinated action is more important than ever, we have built the platform below that helps you access knowledge produced (and published) by our members from one place.
One of the value addition of ADB assistance to its developing member countries is the production of knowledge products that can be shared across and within ADB DMCs. ADB set up a policy database that provides information on the key economic measures that governments are taking to combat the COVID-19 pandemic. Various publications including papers, briefs and blogs are being published analyzing the impact of the current crisis on the economies of countries in Asia and the Pacific. ADB COVID Analytical Work is being oordinated by the Office of the Chief Economist.
As part of the its crisis response, the EBRD is monitoring, country by country, the economic channels of disruption associated with the pandemic and the crisis response measures taken by individual governments to date. The EBRD is also developing a repository of policies and best practices among EBRD countries of operations and beyond and has been updating its regional economic prospects regularly. A series of public webinars have also been organised.
The EIB Economics department keeps track of all the important economic developments surrounding COVID-19 pandemic in both advanced economies and emerging markets. A (bi)weekly briefing is published with analytical assessments of the current macroeconomic and financial market situation, policy measures undertaken to fight the pandemic, as well as special topics providing insight into key economic consequences of the virus.

The recent Macro-Poverty Outlooks include briefs for each region and country, data sheets, and dashboards on COVID impact projections.
Additional briefs and blogs provide inputs on the pandemic.

In support of this Framework UNDP was mandated as technical lead for the socio-economic dimensions of the crisis and has been leading support for the UN system in countries.
The UNDP Human Development Report Office has released Data story and two dashboards on Countries’ Preparedness and Vulnerabilities for COVID-19.

- Dashboard 2 on Vulnerabilities presents a set of indicators including population living in multidimensional poverty and below the monetary poverty line, percent of working poor, social protection coverage and inflows from tourism, remittances and ODA, reflecting vulnerability to potential impacts of the pandemic.
The HDRO has recently also released a report on COVID-19 and human development detailing significant declines expected in human development across the world but being unequally felt across countries with low and high human development.
From the regional perspective in Europe and Central Asia we are embarking on around 14 SE impact surveys across HHs and MSMEs and these are in various stages of completion. This is also in support of the broader UN efforts. We predict that data and analysis reports will only be forthcoming next month and aggregation of results likely in July when all countries will be completed their first round of surveys.
