Gender-Responsive COVID‑19 Impact Assessment

Women and girls are being differently impacted by the COVID-19 crisis and could face disproportionate economic, health and social risks. These gender-differentiated socio-economic risks must be recognized for an effective COVID-19 response and recovery.  

This in-depth checklist can be used to guide UNDP Country Offices, UN agencies, countries and other partners to ensure that key gender equality considerations are taken into account when conducting a Social and Economic Impact Assessment and Response. The checklist can be applied to both the on-going emergency and post-emergency COVID-19 scenarios.
