Rapid Gender Assessment of the COVID-19 Situation in Georgia
Women and girls, particularly those who live with disabilities, are unequally affected by the consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic and lockdown measures. This Rapid Gender Assessment (RGA) report summarizes the findings of an extensive study into the impact of the pandemic on the lives of Georgian residents, particularly women and girls with disabilities. It presents the results of a nationally representative survey and qualitative study, which seeks to amplify marginalized voices and provide evidence-based recommendations to policymakers and practitioners.
This RGA is part of a broader impact assessment initiative of COVID-19 on Europe and Central Asia region and was conducted within the framework of the UN Women-implemented project “Good Governance for Gender Equality in Georgia” supported by the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the UN Joint Programme “Transforming Social Protection for Persons with Disabilities in Georgia”, supported by the Joint SDG Fund.
