Since March 2020 ACAPS has focused its analytical engine on examining the COVID-19 pandemic, and its impact on humanitarian outcomes around the world

Over the past months ACAPS has developed a COVID-19 analytical framework to guide a coherent approach to analysis across the world, developed two global datasets (Government Measures and Secondary Impacts of COVID-19) and published over 30 analytical products through its teams in Geneva, Bangladesh, Jordan and Colombia.  

While many COVID-19: Key questions and information gaps remain, the immediate crisis is subsiding through the leaps forward in global knowledge and understanding of the virus. ACAPS is taking this opportunity to reflect on its COVID-19 analysis to date, identify key findings, lessons and emerging analysis needs.  

This project is in collaboration with
