Egypt COVID-19 Response and Recovery Interventions of the United Nations in Egypt
٠٢ سبتمبر ٢٠٢٠
The United Nations in Egypt developed the Country Preparedness and Response Plan (CPRP) to respond to the health crisis and to cover the Prosperity health-related aspects for an initial 3-months period, starting from 1 April to 30 June 2020 and is adjusted as required based on the changing People situation.
Since COVID-19 is much more than a health crisis with drastic consequences on all socio-economic aspects, the UN in Egypt has developed the COVID-19 Socio-Economic Response Plan (SERP). The purpose of this plan is to support the GoE in addressing and mitigating the socio-economic impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic in Egypt on the most vulnerable groups living in Egypt. A related vulnerability analysis has been developed in the Leaving No-one Behind (LNOB) policy paper.
The SERP has three modes of intervention, targeted policy advice, institutional support, and direct support to vulnerable groups. These interventions include activities related to the direct enhancement of social protection measures to harness the established social protection channels as the livelihoods of most of these groups are affected. It also includes activities that ensure the continuation of the delivery of quality basic services, including education and essential healthcare services. At the same time, it includes targeted support to specific sectors to ensure that those whose jobs are at risk and businesses facing closure can sustain the shocks.
Strategic Objectives outlined in the SERP
Mitigate the economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on industries, MSMEs and entrepreneurs.
Ensure the continuity of inclusive access to public services.
Alleviate the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on agriculture and food security and safety.
Support women and girls' access to economic opportunities and protection services
