Covid-19, Conflict, and Governance Evidence Summary No.21
MetadataShow full item record
This weekly Covid-19, Conflict, and Governance Evidence Summary aims to signpost the UK Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO) and other UK government departments to the latest evidence and opinions on Covid-19 (C19), to inform and support their responses. This week, features resources on: pandemic preparedness through health information systems; how C19 is impacting on poverty and inclusive growth; the varied ways non-state actors are responding to C19 in Africa; and lessons from past disasters in the Asia-Pacific region for C19 responses. Many of the core C19 themes continue to be covered this week, including: the gendered impacts of C19; how C19 is undermining the capacity of actors working to end violence against women and girls; and widespread C19-related corruption. The summary uses two main sections – (1) literature: – this includes policy papers, academic articles, and long-form articles that go deeper than the typical blog; and (2) blogs & news articles. It is the result of one day of work, and is thus indicative but not comprehensive of all issues or publications.
