The first round of the survey received 12,000 responses from more than 130 countries. Key findings from the first six months of data collection have just been released in a new report here.

The second round of the survey, launching on 1 October 2020, will grow the reach and breadth of the research, expanding the global dataset on the impacts of COVID-19.

UNU-WIDER is part of the research consortium running the survey, with Professor Patricia Justino as a project co-leader. Other research consortium members include ISDC – International Security and Development Center, Leibniz-Institut für Gemüse- und Zierpflanzenbau (IGZ), the University of Konstanz, and the Institute for Development Studies (IDS). The project is also supported by various volunteers and a network of collaborating organizations and institutions from around the world.

By taking the 15-minute online survey, respondents can help the research team to uncover how COVID-19 is shaping lives and livelihoods around the world, and enable them to develop responses to the pandemic and to the various counter measures that people and governments have implemented.
