The global pandemic has not only affected the health and wellbeing of people around the world but is has been a wake-up call to the importance of interconnectedness of our societies and enhanced transparency of information available. As the COVID-19 situation has unfolded, ISAR’s mandate of promoting high-quality financial and non-financial reporting by enterprises around the world , and monitoring developments in the field of accounting and reporting matters even more than ever. Accounting and reporting play an important role in supporting transparency and organizational efforts in navigating disturbances in the global economic environment caused by COVID-19. Responding to this dynamic risk, and to deal with the pandemic’s impacts on our society, organizations require timely information, resources, practical guidance and sharing best practices and impactful measures.

To that end, ISAR has developed a dedicated resources web page capturing essential, up-to-date information from our ISAR members, partner organizations, and other relevant stakeholders to help navigate through these unpredicted times. Our goal is to keep the ISAR community informed and support agility during this rapidly evolving situation by pulling timely resources together, adding information from other key sources and our own insights.

UNCTAD ISAR is closely monitoring the situation and will continually update this page.
