Armed Non-State Actors (ANSAs), including those that control territory, responded to COVID-19 by adopting new policies and implementing measures. Against this background, the ANSA COVID-19 Response Monitor tracks such practices. The Response Monitor includes a broad variety of measures with concrete courses of action as well as overall responses reflected in unilateral declarations and public statements made by ANSAs in reaction to COVID-19. The new and improved Response Monitor offers users analytical data through a dashboard where a variety of data-disaggregating sections are displayed. By providing this information, our aim is to support aid and protection organizations in tailoring their engagement strategies in times of the COVID-19 and support those most vulnerable to the impacts of the crisis in armed conflict or violence-affected areas.
