COVID-19 Macroeconomic Policy Responses in Africa

This project aims to promote short-term recovery from COVID-19 and long-term inclusive growth in African countries.

The COVID-19 Macroeconomic Policy Responses in Africa (CoMPRA) project was initiated following a call by the International Development Research Centre for rapid response policy research to the COVID-19 pandemic. The project’s overall goal is to inform macroeconomic policy development in response to the coronavirus pandemic by low- and middle-income countries, and development partners. It also calls for more climate-resilient and gender-responsive measures through evidence-based research. The project will focus broadly on Africa and specifically on Benin, Nigeria, Senegal, South Africa, Tanzania and Uganda.
