This exploratory research examines the impact of COVID-19 on low developed countries and lower-middle income countries.

The research by Southern Voice and the Overseas Development Institute explores the impact of, and responses to, COVID-19 and how it is affecting the Global South. It delves into the social and economic impacts which have been influenced by existing structures, weak policy responses, multiple crises, and other factors. It shows the need for responses to the crisis that take into consideration the circumstances of Global South countries. The research is particularly useful in crafting relevant policy responses to confront the medium to long-term challenges presented by the pandemic.
