About the Project

Description

Project Lockdown provides an overview of COVID-19 NPIs (Non-Pharmaceutical Interventions) being enforced across the globe to help visualize the success of different pandemic response measures, monitor effects on Human and Digital Right, and clarify evaluation metrics.

How far along is it

We launched version 1.0 in June and you can view the dataset layer representing COVID-19 lockdowns on our website.
We expect to relaunch the website with more information about the project and teams soon, and are developing further dataset layers relevant to Human and Digital Rights, e.g. the use of contact tracing apps. We welcome partnerships from other human rights and academic organizations and are looking for funding and support to sustain our work long-term.
