Nov 10, 2020
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic that swept across the world in early 2020, the United Nations system mobilized its full capacity through 131 country teams serving 162 countries and territories to support national authorities in developing public health preparedness and response plans to the crisis. In Ukraine, the UN system conducted more than 50 surveys and studies to assess the full scope of the pandemic. The UN Development Programme in collaboration with UN Women and UN Food and Agriculture Organization led the socio-economic assessment of the impact on businesses and households in Ukraine. This report presents the findings of two separate surveys which reached 974 owners of MSMEs and 1,022 households in all 24 oblasts and in the city of Kyiv.
