Liberia, a country with approximately 4.5 million people and located in the west coast of Africa, faced two civil wars in recent times. The first between 1989 and 1996, and the second between 1999 and 2003, having as one of its greatest consequences the displacement of hundreds of thousands of people. In 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic has further strained the weak economy and health system. A coordinated, transparent and inclusive response is essential to guide Liberia through the crisis. 


COVID-19 Rapid Impact Assessment and Recovery Roadmap in Liberia

The objective of this project is to conduct a rapid assessment of the socio-economic impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic (and its mitigation measures) in Liberia. The study produced as part of the project analyzes the implications of COVID-19 on the pre-existing macro and micro-economic, human development and governance vulnerabilities. Based on the findings of the rapid assessment and in partnership with the UN Country Team in Liberia, a set of recommendations is developed to chart the roadmap for the short- and long-term recovery process to build back better leaving no one behind. This rapid assessment study aims to provide the necessary evidence and inputs to inform and guide the relevant COVID-19 interventions and response efforts of the UN agencies, the Government and other development partners.  

The report will be published soon in this page.
