Covid-19 Research and Respond
The Covid-19 pandemic is having unprecedented social, political and economic effects on economies of developed and developing countries. Global recession—the one that could be worse than the great depression—is projected the longer this pandemic persists. The impact could also be disproportionately distributed across countries, having small and low-income countries faced severe consequences given their weak health system, limited fiscal and monetary policy options because of low government savings and, in some countries, high national debts, and a relatively strong reliance on external trade.
CDRI is currently conducting series of policy relevant research to understand the impacts of Covid-19 and inform mitigation, response and recovery measures and strategy.
