Chronic poverty report 2023: pandemic poverty

CPAN’s Chronic Poverty Report 2023: Pandemic Poverty provides evidence and analysis on how policies and programmes shaped and were shaped by the Covid-19 pandemic. It aims to help decision-makers and multi-lateral agencies prepare for future crises as well as suggesting recommendations to recover equitably from the Covid-19 pandemic. The Chronic Poverty Report focuses on the highly negative effects of Covid-19 restrictions, and most importantly, the success or otherwise of the measures pursued to mitigate those effects on people in and near poverty. The leading message is that where restrictions are necessary, they should be minimised, and complemented by adequate measures to mitigate their negative effects.
