Abstract

This study will use desk-based research with three country case studies to better understand the impacts on people and communities of the COVID-19 pandemic, taking a multi-sectoral approach (drawing on the REACH Multi-Sectoral Needs Assessments). The study team hopes to identify priority sectors and vulnerable groups or populations. The expected outcomes are a better understanding of the multi-sectoral vulnerability to Covid-19 in the 7 MSNA countries, which can inform research design of the 2020 MSNA process and inform emergency prioritization; and an understanding of how Covid-19 is exacerbating humanitarian needs in these crises, to inform targeting and decision-making of humanitarian response to COVID-19, both within the health sector and other sectors.
