Nora Lustig, founding director of Tulane University’s Commitment to Equity Institute (CEQI), is leading a new project in CEQI titled “Measuring Fiscal Equity in the Post-Covid-19 World.” The project has been awarded almost $1.2 million from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

According to the press release, the grant will be used to “assess how the Covid-19 pandemic and resulting fiscal policies have affected inequality, poverty, and mobility” and “fund research to help shape more equitable outcomes in developing countries.” The project will “gauge how the pandemic is affecting the world’s most vulnerable populations over the short and long terms and will develop methodologies, software tools and datasets to guide policymakers toward crafting more equitable responses to the crisis.” Lustig and her team will complete the project by March 2023.
