Reports, policy responses and webinars on the public governance response to Covid19

Good public governance is more important than ever

In times of crisis such as the current COVID-19 pandemic and its economic and social repercussions, public governance matters more than ever. Governance arrangements have played a critical role in countries’ immediate responses, and will continue to be crucial both to the recovery and to building a “new normal” once the crisis has passed. 

The OECD has been taking stock of country responses and developing analysis and recommendations on a range of public governance topics. The resulting evidence-based policy responses below are designed to help governments tackle the crisis and plan for a sustainable recovery.
