ABSTRACT

COVID-19 and Human Development: Exploring Global Preparedness and Vulnerability   [open pdf - 0B]

From the Document: "COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] crisis is more than a global health emergency; it is a systemic human development crisis, reflecting our interaction with the ecosystem we are part of, which is already affecting the economic and social dimensions of development in unprecedented ways. Policies to reduce vulnerabilities and build capacities to tackle crises, both in the short and long term, are vital to enable individuals and societies to better weather and recover from these shocks. The two dashboards here look at how prepared countries are for a crisis like COVID-19 and how vulnerable they are."
