The Open Development Mekong platform has been working to connect people with information about services during the pandemic. Over the last months, Open Development Vietnam has published a timeline of relevant government policies, a page of essential information on COVID-19 services, and a page on the impact of COVID-19 on Vietnam. To assist readers, ODV has also published a video walkthrough of how to use the resources. In addition, the Open Development Mekong blog offers a different take on the impacts of the pandemic as it relates to the data ecosystem. In the upcoming months, work will be published on the impact of COVID-19 on employment in Myanmar, gender equality in Laos, precarious employment in Thailand, as well as a regional look on the impact of the pandemic on human rights and education, as well as the impact of data gaps on understanding COVID-19 in the region.
