What is the Covid Loan Tracker?

The Covid Loan Tracker website was created by Social Watch Philippines for the citizens’ monitoring of the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB) COVID-19 Loan Project.

Worth US$750 million, the loan was signed in June 2020 and forms part of the financing generated by the government of the Philippines to fund the
COVID-19 Active Response and Expenditure Support (CARES) Program.

Combining research, advocacy, and communications work, the project seeks to generate meaningful citizens’ participation in monitoring the program outcomes and policy impacts of the COVID-19 loan.

This website will feature updates on monitoring activities — such as studies and webinars — and articles on current events relevant to the project.

Through this website, SWP hopes to raise public awareness and generate greater citizens engagement in tracking COVID-19 borrowing.
