FAO’s Data Lab for statistical innovation - Using alternative data sources to monitor the impact of COVID-19

COVID-19 is a global health crisis with profound effects. Timely and reliable information on its evolution and consequences can help anticipate and mitigate potential disruptions caused by the pandemic. This can help to avert major food-security and livelihood crises, avoiding panic reactions that could aggravate the situation and harm the food and nutrition security of the most vulnerable.National data-collection processes are being disrupted by COVID-19-induced social-distancing measures. This is not only affecting the availability of food and agricultural statistics, but also the capacity of national statistical systems and other data producers to respond to new data demands arising from the pandemic.
