The Socioeconomic Impact of the COVID-19 Pandemic in Postdisaster Areas

Thursday, February 25, 2021

The coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is a health crisis that has an impact on the socioeconomic condition of a country, including Indonesia. The socioeconomic burden was even heavier in regions hit by the 2018 natural disasters, such as West Nusa Tenggara and Central Sulawesi. The pandemic has caused families, children, and women in both provinces to suffer from multiple impacts. UNDP and UNICEF, as the Indonesian Government’s main development partners at the national and regional levels, have been providing special support for the government in the handling of the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and the challenges that accompany it. One of the forms of support was to conduct a study entitled “The Socioeconomic Impact of the COVID-19 Pandemic in Postdisaster Areas: Rapid Assessment in West Nusa Tenggara and Central Sulawesi”. The study was conducted in collaboration with The SMERU Research Institute.
