COVID-19 : Sécurité alimentaire et fondements de l'espoir

Isabelle Tsakok | Posted : May 21, 2020

S'il y a un point positif dans cette pandémie de COVID-19, c'est la prise de conscience de l'importance de ce qui nous est le plus cher : la sécurité alimentaire et les fondements de l'espoir.

International Development and the Private Sector in the Coronavirus Outbreak

Adil El Madani | Posted : May 20, 2020

Despite the global magnitude of the COVID-19 crisis, the response to the pandemic has mainly occurred at national level, with very poor global coordination so far. For Africa, which will provide one in four of the world’s consumers by 2050, coming out of the crisis will cost at least $100 billion. The average ratio of public revenue to GDP in African countries is only 19%, and the debt burden already absorbs 22% of that revenue, giving many African governments limited scope compared to other countries when planning their recoveries. This is especially the case in contexts of fragility characterized by a lack of institutional capacity to initiate and implement complex policies. That is why the private sector should be instrumental in providing solutions and the development community should encourage it to take a more active role.

Beacons of Hope

Helmut Sorge | Posted : May 19, 2020

The merciless COVID-19 disease threatens economic misery, with people around the world touched by anxiety and unemployment. In this context, never in recent history has so much hope centered on scientists and the studious brilliance of academic institutions. Media headlines tell the story, with newspapers around the world speaking of beacons of hope in the form of potential cures, vaccines, immune therapies, and clinical trials. Without the solutions of science, nations face long-term disruption to their way of life.

Une stratégie basée sur les risques pour déconfiner l'économie et tuer le virus

Uri Dadush | Posted : May 18, 2020

Alors que commence le déconfinement de l'économie française, la grande inquiétude est de savoir comment éviter une « seconde vague » de l'épidémie. Parmi les nombreuses précautions et mesures à prendre, l’augmentation du nombre de tests et le traçage systématique des contacts sont les plus souvent mis en avant par les épidémiologistes. L'idéal serait de tester fréquemment tous les habitants du pays et ses visiteurs étrangers. Pour cela, il faudrait effectuer bien au-delà de 60 millions de tests Covid-19 chaque semaine ou deux. La France a toutefois effectué moins de 1,5 million de tests de dépistage depuis le début de l'épidémie, et l'objectif - jugé ambitieux - est d'arriver à 500.000 tests par semaine d'ici le 11 mai.

A Risk-Based Strategy to Reopen the American Economy and Contain the Virus

Uri Dadush | Posted : May 14, 2020

Confronted with surging unemployment and miles long lines at food banks across the United States, most states have begun reopening the economy. Many of these states are seeing rising numbers of new cases and face a real risk of relapsing into an uncontrolled pandemic. To avoid this outcome, they must adopt a strategy that entails testing, tracing, and isolation of the infected, with priority given to groups and places where the medical impact – reducing infections and saving lives – is highest. Several new studies, mainly originating in Europe where the epidemic has claimed the largest number of victims, provide invaluable data on how to set priorities.

How shaped will the post-coronavirus economic recovery be?

Otaviano Canuto | Posted : May 11, 2020

Data recently released on the first-quarter global domestic product (GDP) performance of major economies have showed how significant the impact of COVID-19 has been on economic activity and jobs, with large contractions across the board. The ongoing global recession is poised to be worse than the “great recession” after the 2008-09 global financial crisis, especially from the standpoint of emerging market and developing economies. The depth and speed of the GDP decline will rival that of the Great Depression of the 1930s.

Helmut Sorge | Posted : May 11, 2020

They live in the shadow of death: the United States has 2,650 death-row inmates, 740 in California’s San Quentin State Prison alone. Today, these prisoners fear another executioner, the invisible COVID-19.
