Assessment of Socio-economic Impact of COVID-19 on Children and Women

The Social Policy Research Institute (SPRI Global) is currently supporting UNICEF Liberia in an assessment of the socio-economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on children and women in Liberia. The assessment relies on both quantitative and qualitative data collection methods.

The assessment will determine the impact of COVID-19 on essential health and non-health social services and systems during the crisis; social protection and essential services; job security; informal sector workers; and social cohesion and community resilience. The assessment will primarily focus on the socio-economic impact at the household level.

This assessment and the recommended courses of action should provide decision-makers with critical evidence, including on:

  1. The magnitude of the country-specific vulnerability of children (girls and boys), women and vulnerable groups to the primary and secondary effects of COVID-19
  2. The socio-economic and demographic determinants and drivers of the magnitude of effects/impacts of COVID 19 on children (girls and boys), women and vulnerable groups
  3. The positive and negative short-term and longer-term effects of government policy and programmatic interventions, such as lockdowns and school closures, to mitigate the effects of COVID-19 on children, women and their families
  4. The inequities in primary and secondary COVID-19 impacts on children, women and their families (identification of the most vulnerable groups of children to these effects)
  5. Recommendations on appropriate governmental interventions and how to operationalise them into planning, budgeting and monitoring. 
  6. Best practice financial strategies and approaches to mitigate COVID-19 impacts on children, women and vulnerable groups in Liberia.
