IFPRI COVID-19 Policy Response Portal

Created Mar 12 2021, 11:44 AM by Vivek Prasad

IFPRI COVID-19 Policy Response Portal aggregates policy responses in nine different domains for countries where IFPRI and its partner institutions have country and regional programs and projects. The information can be analyzed by country or policy response category. In addition to policy responses, the portal includes separate tabs at the top with information on foreign aid support for COVID-19, institutional coordination to manage COVID-19, and citizen responses to government policies in order to examine compliance. .The sources include direct communication by government officials, ministerial press releases, local media reporting, and information from other relevant trackers, including that from the Armed Conflict Location & Event Data Project (ACLED), International Monetary Fund, the Food and Agricultural Organization, and ACAPs. In this way, the CPR helps to provide a comprehensive view of how governments are prioritizing responses. The portal will be updated regularly as new responses emerge. Click here to visit the portal.
