Policymakers across the developing world are facing the need to make rapid decisions on their COVID-19 response with little available data or guidance. IGC is working to support these decision-making processes by increasing the supply of data and distilling relevant policy guidance. We are launching a large collaborative data collection effort to provide policymakers with access to the best available data on the spread of the virus and its evolving economic impact so that the policy responses can be tailored to the local context and capacity and adjusted in real time. We are also drawing on the expertise of researchers in economics, development and health to set out provisional guidance based on the limited evidence available so far. This policy guidance reflects our current thinking. It is a living document that will be updated as new evidence becomes available.
