From the Document: "Governments worldwide are taking unprecedented action to respond to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, adopting fiscal measures worth billions or even trillions of dollars to safeguard the wellbeing of their citizens and support households and businesses through a period of massive economic disruption. This report examines the response of independent fiscal institutions (IFIs) during this first rescue phase of the crisis,as they provide rapid analysis to decision-makers and the public. With many legislatures facing operational challenges and emergency protocols to expedite legislation, IFIs have a critical role to play supporting legislatures as they approve and oversee emergency measures."
