We would like to introduce you the report on COVID-19 socio-economic impact assessment (SEIA) of communities in Armenia.
The SEIA has revealed interlinked factors increasing the systemic impact of COVID-19 on the health, economy and social life of people in Armenian communities. The findings of the multidimensional impact assessment were discussed and triangulated with stakeholders in all regions (marzes) of Armenia and Yerevan. Based on the results of the assessment and inputs from the regional stakeholders and seasoned experts involved in the SEIA, a set of targeted recommendations and suggestions were proposed.
