Throughout this period, ACAPS developed a COVID-19 analytical framework to guide a coherent approach to analysis across the world, developed two global datasets, and published over 30 analytical products through its teams in Bangladesh, Colombia, Geneva, and Jordan.
COVID-19 GOVERNMENT MEASURES
In mid-March 2020, ACAPS began compiling a dataset of government measures put in place across the world to contain the pandemic. It remains available for organisations and individuals to use in their analyses. In late May 2020, ACAPS compiled a second dataset of humanitarian exemptions to government measures to help explain what allowances were made across the world to enable humanitarian operations to continue to support those most in need.
SECONDARY IMPACTS OF COVID-19
The ACAPS COVID-19 Analytical Framework, together with the data collected for the Government Measures Dataset, provided the foundation for the Secondary Impacts Analytical Framework and accompanying dataset. This dataset tracked secondary impacts across a wide range of relevant themes, such as economy, health, migration, and education.
A group of student volunteers from various universities worldwide supported the data collection.

These scenarios focus primarily on the potential ways the global humanitarian situation may change over 2021, although they are anticipated to remain valid well into 2022. It should be noted that the scenarios are not mutually exclusive. Because the focus is global, it is possible for one scenario to transpire in one region or country while the other scenarios may develop elsewhere.
