PMMA-20582 Simulations of policy responses and interventions to promote inclusive adaptation to and recovery from the COVID-19 crisis in Ghana


In July 2020, Canada’s International Development Research Centre (IDRC) awarded funding to PEP for a new COVID-19 crisis recovery research initiative. Through this initiative, PEP will work with teams involving local researchers and government institutions to assess COVID-19 impacts and the effectiveness of current and potential policies, as well as to inform inclusive adaptation and recovery policies responding to the crisis in developing countries. Projects will be undertaken in seven African countries (Benin, Côte d’Ivoire, Ethiopia, Ghana, Kenya, Nigeria, and Zimbabwe), two Asian countries (Pakistan and Vietnam) and two South American countries (Argentina and Ecuador).
