Rapid Emergency Needs Assessment

October 30, 2020

This assessment focused on impact COVID-19 on the most vulnerable groups and looks at the income loss on formal and informal workers. The report provides a rapid assessment of the needs created by COVID-19, not only directly, but indirectly through the impact of lockdowns and other measures taken to combat the spread of the disease. Emphasis was laid on two aspects of the assessment:

  • Vulnerable groups were at the forefront in all the work that went into the report, and their cross-cutting needs are highlighted. 
  • The measures proposed to meet these needs were costed, supporting the practical implementation of the report’s recommendations.
