The Covid-19 Responses for Equity (CORE) is a three-year initiative that brings together 21 new projects to understand the socio-economic impacts of the pandemic, improve existing responses, and generate better policy options for recovery. The research is taking place across 42 countries in Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Middle East.
The research aims to focus on the most affected populations and regions while seeking to advance gender equality and address the ways the COVID-19 pandemic has deepened existing vulnerabilities. The primary themes are:
• Economic policies for support & recovery
• Protecting informal businesses, small producers & women workers
• Promoting accountability, social inclusion & civil engagement
