COVID-19 and its impacts on the vulnerable and urban poor in Ethiopia

The effect of COVID-19 and government response measures on poor and vulnerable groups in urban areas in Ethiopia – report two

This research report is the second in a series of six reports which provide an insight into the extent to which COVID-19 and associated government responses and measures affect the urban poor and vulnerable individuals in Ethiopia. The findings from this second round, as summarised in this four-page brief, highlight the paramount importance of designing policy that ensures the most vulnerable benefit from the support provided by government and other organisations, and that the process of targeting the support is transparent. Read the first research report here.

Authored by Donna Harris, Alula Teklu, Girmay Medhin, Israel Mitiku, Biniyam Tadesse, Mekdes Demissie and Frehiwot Bekele. The study is funded through the Building Resilience in Ethiopia (BRE) Programme and implemented in partnership with the Maintains Programme.
