The spread of the novel COVID-19 virus stands to impact every facet of humanitarian and development program design and implementation. With new emergency aid and modifications of ongoing aid and development programing, Third-Party Monitoring (TPM) remains even more important as physical access becomes restricted. This document aims to provide actionable guidelines for adapting TPM approaches in the current COVID-19 pandemic, but is applicable to any new emerging epidemic or pandemic, and is designed to be used with country - and program-level risk assessments to minimize the risk of exposure while ensuring program accountability.
