COVID-19 Policy Response

On 11 March 2020, the World Health Organisation (WHO) declared COVID -19 a global pandemic. This declaration alarmed the world about the severity of the disease, its speed of contagion and the need for government to act with credible policy measures to contain it.

After China (in Wuhan), the virus propagated in Italy (in the North) and then spread to the whole country, continued to Spain, to the other European countries and continued to the Middle East, Africa and all parts of the globe.

On 18 March 2020, EMEA launched  a regional policy research initiative on COVID-19 that aims to identify and to assess the policy responses and socio-economic challenges linked to this global pandemic and future responses to enhance our socio-economic resilience in Europe, the Mediterranean and Africa.
