Never has there been a rallying point for science advice at a global scale as we are now experiencing with the COVID-19 pandemic. With it come the hallmarks of advising in a time of crisis: the evidence is uncertain, the science is fast-moving, the stakes are high and, in some public discussions at least, values are in dispute.
Our goal is to mobilise the INGSA network to help keep track of HOW policy interventions are being made by various national and sub-national (state, province, etc.) governments across the world. We are interested in the advice, evidence or other justifications that underpin governments’ decisions as the crisis unfolds.
