The UN COVID-19 Response and Recovery Multi-Partner Trust Fund

March 30, 2022

India's Response to COVID-19 under MPTF COVID-19 response had two main goals of reaching those whoare most in need with food and livelihoods assistance to enable them to cope, while also supporting the right to food and right to work as legislated in the National Food Security Act (2013) and the National Employment Guarantee Act (2005). This initiative supported National and State-level responses to COVID-19, facilitating collaboration between Government, civil society, private sector, UN and other development partners.

Partnerships with the private sector helped to leverage additional financing for scale-up, and innovations and digital tools were applied to facilitate and expand reach of solutions to vulnerable and marginalised individuals, families and communities. These responses were aimed at reducing the immediate burden and will be complemented by sustained efforts to ensure that systems and policies are strengthened to enable citizens to build back better and live a life of fairness and dignity.
