Rapid research response

April 01, 2020 00:00:00

Let me share with readers the news that the BRAC Institute of Governance and Development (BIGD) has decided to launch a 'Rapid Research Response to Covid-19'. We will partner with other research institutes to do rapid actionable research and active communications with policy and programme actors working on Covid-19 response. We will primarily use phone surveys but also partner with organisations having presence and activities on the ground.

Our focus will be on lives and livelihoods of the poor and the vulnerable. We also want to understand how our micro, small, and medium enterprises - the economic lifeline- are dealing with the crisis. We intend to share useful insights with different stakeholders working with Covid-19 issues on who need urgent support and what kind of support is needed.
