Abstract

This project will document and analyze the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on vulnerable groups in Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Côte d'Ivoire, and Senegal. Using qualitative and quantitative techniques, the research team will analyze changes in activities, income, consumption, and well-being, including indicators such as domestic violence and the level of confidence in the future on the part of young people, women, and people working in the informal sector. The team will collect up-to-date and robust data on the impact of the COVID-19 outbreak on vulnerable households and micro-, small-, and medium-sized enterprises; disseminate this information in a clear and accessible way to decision-makers and other stakeholders; provide policy response proposals to the COVID-19 outbreak to improve the conditions of households and businesses; and reinforce capacities of researchers in Rwanda.
