Rapid Assessment of COVID-19 Impact report offers essential information and insights on various economic issues, particularly those related to diverse and inclusive opportunities, in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic in all three municipalities. 

The assessment aimed to achieve three main objectives: 

i) evaluate the economic and social impacts of the pandemic on households, informal enterprises, and formal enterprises

ii) identify obstacles to their economic recovery and employment opportunities post-COVID-19

iii) suggest potential interventions to mitigate impacts and foster inclusive local economic development.

The findings and recommendations from this assessment played a guiding role in subsequent Detailed Impact Assessments (DIA).
