In the early stages of the Covid-19 pandemic, INGSA was quick to pivot its efforts to the issue of how evidence was being used by decision-makers to inform policy in response to the crisis. INGSA was able to mobilise an extensive international network to provide insight, in real time, as to the flows of evidence that were influencing policies made around the globe. This was important work and subsequently was incorporated into the long-term work of other policy trackers such as the Blavatnik School of Government Oxford Tracker and the UK International Public Policy Observatory.
The data for the INGSA Covid Tracker and this website have been archived here for ongoing reference, but is part of a project that is no longer active.
In response to the COVID-19 outbreak, INGSA has created this information hub to aggregate and share the resources and discussions relating to how science advice and evidence functions in emergencies. We are looking for experts and practitioners to write commentary and analysis, share resources and opportunities, and provide input into our global evidence-to-policy tracker.
