Assessing the Economic Resilience of Ugandan Households Before COVID
This is a detailed analysis of the economic resilience of adult Ugandans before the COVID-19 pandemic. Insights from the report highlight crucial vulnerabilities that existed even before the pandemic (especially among women and the poorest adults). Conducted in partnership with the Ministry of Finance, Planning and Economic Development this analysis is a crucial baseline that informs all policy and development initiatives on 'building back better' during and post the pandemic.
Assessing the Economic Resilience of Ugandan Households During COVID
Building on our earlier analysis, FSD Uganda conducted a phone-based survey which took place over a period of six months to understand how the pandemic had impacted people and businesses in Uganda. The survey results feed into a pan African COVID-19 tracker aimed at highlighting how the disease has impacted people across a wide variety of domains.
Earlier studies conducted by FSD Uganda indicate that specific segments of the population - including people who directly or indirectly rely on farming - will be severely affected by the impact of COVID-19 pandemic. We conducted a rapid diagnostic to understand how agricultural finance in Uganda has been affected, to inform financial market-led recovery efforts. Findings from the study have been used to strengthen FSD Uganda’s new five-year agricultural portfolio.
