This report was launched on the 1st anniversary of the launch of the OECD’s Centre on Well-being, Inclusion, Sustainability and Equal Opportunity (WISE). COVID-19 and Well-being: Life in the Pandemic explores the immediate implications of the pandemic for people’s lives and livelihoods in OECD countries. The report charts the course of well-being – from jobs and incomes through to social connections, health, work-life balance, safety and more.
This OECD centre/report focuses strongly on the Economy of Wellbeing concept. It also examines the role that well-being evidence can play in supporting governments’ pandemic recovery efforts. It argues that a well-being lens can prompt policy-makers to refocus on the outcomes that matter the most to people, to redesign policy content from a more multidimensional perspective, to realign policy practice across government silos, and to reconnect people with the public institutions that serve them.
