COVID-19 Recovery Policy Brief

Source(s):  International Recovery Platform (IRP)

This brief is offered to define the COVID-19 recovery context and to supplement existing guidance with key principles and practices to guide recovery planning. There is a diverse range of recovery needs that extend far beyond that of human health. While maintaining a steady state of transmission control and the capacity to sustain intermittent spikes in case numbers are both foundational to long-term COVID-19 recovery, the wider recovery effort will require multisectoral participation to address a range of issues that are typical of many other disaster types (e.g., infrastructure, education, governance, commerce).

The report defines nine key actions for recovery for governments:

  1. Establish pandemic recovery coordination and implementation arrangements;

  2. Assess the wider socioeconomic impacts of the crisis and the capabilities to manage needs;

  3. Ensure safe and healthy workplaces;

  4. Institute or provide guidance on societal recovery;

  5. Plan for a comprehensive economic recovery;

  6. Promote livelihoods recovery and expansion;

  7. Rehabilitate and strengthen the medical and public health sectors;

  8. Support psychosocial recovery;

  9. Expand utilization of e-governance and emerging technologies in recovery.
