The dashboard below presents data from a set of socio-economic response monitoring indicators that emanated from the UN framework for the immediate response to the socio-economic impact of COVID-19. This dashboard followed the call from the Secretary-General’s to develop a "… single, consolidated dashboard to provide up-to-date visibility on [COVID-19] activities and progress across all pillars”. The indicators monitor the progress and achievements of UNCT’s collective actions in socio-economic response. Together with the indicators monitoring the health and humanitarian responses, and the indicators monitoring the human rights impact of COVID-19, they make up the core basis for the UN system’s indicator framework for COVID-19.
Data is collected by the UNCTs and reported through the UN INFO platform. The dashboard is powered by the collective data collection efforts of UNSDG members.

The COVID-19 crisis plunged the world economy into a recession with historical levels of unemployment and deprivation, meaning this is a crisis of jobs and livelihoods as well health. Small and medium-sized enterprises, farm workers, the self-employed, daily wage earners, informal sector workers, women, youth, refugees and migrant workers are hit the hardest. In response, the UN has focused on supporting member states and constituents in developing policies and programmes to protect jobs and incomes of the most vulnerable workers and hard-hit sectors to prevent the collapse of economic activity and associated labour market distress. Ensuring the continued or improved functioning of small producers, informal workers and SMEs across sectors is vital to ensure production of, and access to, food and other essential goods and services.
