In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, IPA has launched Research for Effective COVID-19 Responses, or RECOVR. Through this effort, IPA is generating rigorous evidence, advising governments, and bringing together partners across the research-to-policy sector to rapidly provide decision-makers with rigorous data and evidence to mitigate the impacts of the crisis. We would like to acknowledge the Global Poverty Research Lab (GPRL) for their support and the Yale Research Initiative on Innovation and Scale (Y-RISE) for their partnership in this effort.

As COVID-19 spreads around the world, IPA's Peace & Recovery Program is accepting off-cycle proposals, capped at $50,000, for time-sensitive research or additions to research projects that study or support the COVID-19 response.
