Culture & COVID-19: Impact and Response Tracker, UNESCO, Paris, France.

Culture & Covid Issue 10

To address the profound impact the COVID-19 pandemic will have on the culture sector, UNESCO has launched a weekly “Culture & COVID-19: Impact and Response Tracker” to provide an overview of the rapidly evolving situation. It explores both the immediate impact of the health crisis and examples of how countries around the world are adapting to the situation. This is one of several initiatives by the Organization to respond to the impact of the pandemic on the cultural sector worldwide.

Ten issues have already appeared, examining such issues as the impact on world heritage sites, tourism, museums, archaeological sites, and indigenous peoples.
