How has the pandemic affected your country’s resilience?

November 10, 2020

How effectively have your public services supported citizens and businesses during the pandemic? How well equipped is your country to weather the recession? And which financial, economic and social weaknesses threaten its ability to protect citizens’ lives and livelihoods over the next year?

A new international league table and monitoring tool can help answer these questions: Swiss Re’s Resilience Index 2020 and Pandemic Macro Clock use high-quality datasets to assess both how well governments have responded to the pandemic, and how prepared they are for the economic storms to come. Watch this Global Government Forum webinar on demand to find out where your country stands and learn how these datasets can support evidence-based policymaking. Why, for example, has resilience fallen so far in the UK and USA? And how has Canada retained its high resilience ranking?

Swiss Re also introduced its Risk Resilience Center, developed with Palantir Technologies, which integrates COVID-19 related health, economic and social data in one unique platform to help guide COVID-19 related workplace policies, mental health management or capital requirements.
