Objective: To carry out the codification, analysis and visualization of Covid containment measures at the subnational level in Colombia in order to contribute to the Observatory led by the University of Miami.

Semillero Profile: The Semillero Políticas Subnacionales para la Contención del Covid-19 en Colombia is focused on analyzing the response capacity of the Colombian State through public policies in the face of the pandemic. With this, the seedbed intends to account for the measures taken towards strict quarantines or reopenings as the pandemic evolves in the country.

Work methodology: The seedbed requires a constant review of departmental decrees to update the database that accounts for the policies formulated by the government. In it, the information is organized with parameters on the rigorousness of the measures taken for the containment of COVID-19. From there, they are analyzed from a quantitative and qualitative perspective taking into account additional data to evaluate their effectiveness.
