Assessing the impact of COVID-19 in Asia and the Pacific and designing policy responses: An Excel-based model
COVID-19 is an unprecedented socio-economic crisis and calls for unprecedented policy responses. Asia-Pacific region is no exception.
In this context, an Excel-based model is developed to help countries ensure effective policy design and to align policy responses with the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. The model produces a snapshot of the socio-economic situation facing the country/territory, and allows simple policy scenarios to be studied.

Contribute your voice or apply as an Advocate today and join a community of action-oriented youth.
