Covid-19 Responses for Equity (CORE) has now closed. The site is no longer being updated.



CORE is a three year initiative that seeks to understand the socio-economic impacts of the pandemic, improve existing responses, and generate better policy options for recovery.

Macro-economic policies for support & recovery
Supporting essential economic activity - protecting informal businesses, small producers & women workers
Promoting democratic governance - accountability, social inclusion & civil engagement

The world’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic must ensure gender equality, rights and inclusion, and environmental sustainability and resilience. Evidence-based responses can support these efforts and contribute to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals.
