[VIRTUAL] Rapid Assessment Surveys and COVID-19 Socio-Economic Impact Assessments in the Pacific

Kind of event
Partners Meeting
Joint Partner
United Nations, World Bank


Although the Pacific has so far escaped the worse impacts of the COVID-19 virus from a health perspective, restrictions on international travel and both global and domestic lock-downs have caused severe economic disruptions. Unfortunately there is currently a lack of reliable and timely data on the depth and breadth of the socio-economic impacts of COVID-19 and its consequences in the Pacific. This has generated a lot of interest from Development Partners and Donors around the region, all with the best of intentions in assisting developing economies in particular, with understanding the full impacts of the pandemic to assist in the recovery process. Likewise, National Governments across the Pacific have been actively working to identify the impacts of the COVID-19 crisis in order to provide the best support to its citizens and residents, during this challenging period.
