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 impacts the world’s poorest and most vulnerable hardest, and so it remains of utmost importance to ensure that the population everywhere continues to have access to social services and social protection. The United Nations development system is the world’s largest international actor on social protection and basic services. The system supported Governments around the world that had to adapt, extend and scale-up social protection services, including cash transfers, food assistance programmes, social insurance programmes and child benefits to support families, among others.
