Innovative coronavirus (Covid-19) responses by governments and public interest organisations
The Covid-19 crisis has kick-started a need for new approaches: a global flurry to find solutions for an unexpected crisis. Few governments have been fully prepared to deal with a crisis of this nature, and many are working hard to rally resources and unify experts from across the public, private and non-profit sectors toward a common goal. In this context, the sharing of ideas and best practices is critical: pandemics do not stay within boundaries, borders and silos, and neither should the global response.
In this context, the OECD Open and Innovative Government Division and the Centre for Public Impact are issuing this call to all levels of government, civil society, international organisations and the private sector to gather innovative solutions and inspiration on how individuals and organisations across the globe are responding to the crisis. We invite you to include additional Covid-19 responses using this form. You need not be the person in charge of the response--it can be something you came across and think it should be included.

Everyone's responses will be immediately available for public view (except for your own contact email) as a live document to promote shared learning across countries on innovation that have been tried or proven to work. Access responses here:
What is the innovative response? Describe the key aspects. What is important to know about it? (Limit to 2-4 paragraphs)
What general issue(s) is this addressing?
Health and safety of responders
Information and practice sharing (with public and/or internal)
Resource management and mobilisation
Real-time data collection, sharing, and analysis
Public service delivery under new circumstances
Social effects of the crisis
What specific issue is this solution intended to address? What is the anticipated or expected impact? (2-4 paragraphs maximum)
Give the innovative response a short title (20 words or fewer, something that others can quickly scan to see if it is relevant to them)
Organisations/institutions involved (list all that play a role)
What possible issues are you anticipating or what might need to be tweaked/iterated later? Or, is there something you need from others?
Please select the level(s) of government most relevant to the innovation
