Stay tuned. Our Coordinating Lead Author Nora Lustig has teamed up with other colleagues in almost every country in Latin America to create two networks of Latin American economists on policy responses:
- a WhatsApp group on the COVID-19 economic crisis in Latin America. They are producing weekly reports on the countries’ situation and policy responses. They will collate them into a single document. All this information will be made publicly available on our website as soon as it is ready.
- In conjunction with UNDP Regional Bureau for Latin America and the Caribbean, Nora Lustig launched a network of economists from Latin America to focus on social protection measures. The group will meet every two weeks. There will be a summary of proposals from each meeting. The documents will be made publicly available.
