This project provides a policy tracker of government responses (PTGR) to the COVID-19 crisis for 10 countries in the MENA region. It is a unique and precious resource of data on what governments in the region have done to date, to deal with the pandemic. The methodology focuses on three areas of government response: public health, economic, and social policies. The data have been drawn from international organizations, government websites, official documents, trusted media sources, and peer-reviewed publications. The tangible outcome is a tailored dataset along with multiple analytics to advise policymakers and inform decision-making, provide insight on what governments do, and provide a platform for real-time tracking going forward into 2020 and 2021.
