The impact of COVID-19 on women’s and men’s lives and livelihoods in Europe and Central Asia: Preliminary results from a Rapid Gender Assessment


In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the UN Women Regional Office for Europe and Central Asia, with the support of the EU, has developed a rapid survey assessment tool to assess the gendered impacts of COVID-19 on the main challenges faced by women and men.

The survey findings can be used by countries/territories to inform, guide and support response planning and address the gendered impact of the pandemic. Furthermore, it is intended to identify gender gaps in the ongoing response and to serve as a baseline assessment for faster and more gender-sensitive interventions if future outbreaks happen.

The rapid gender assessment survey was rolled out between April and June 2020 in 16 countries/territories across the region, but the report draws data collected in 10 of those, including Azerbaijan, Georgia, and the Republic of Moldova.
