It monitors worldwide policy measures on aid and relief packages adopted by governments and international and regional institutions to address the impact the impact of COVID-19 and support businesses, jobs and households. The interactive map allows to search measures by categories (fiscal and monetary measures, jobs and skills, market intelligence and public-private partnerships, measures to restart tourism and domestic tourism) and by countries and regions.
