    Policy dialogue: Gendered impacts of COVID-19 and gender-responsive policymaking in agriculture and food systems during the COVID-19 pandemic 2021

    The COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in the loss of human lives and livelihoods across Africa, presenting unprecedented challenges to all sectors, including public health, agriculture, and industry. The impacts have been felt across rural and urban areas and by men and women from all walks of life. However, there have been important differences in the ways men and women were affected and coped with this crisis. Governments, development agencies, and civil society organisations now face the challenge of developing and implementing policies and programmes that respond to the disparate needs of diverse groups of men and women. The Policy Dialogue Gendered Impacts of COVID-19 in Africa presents recent findings from Ethiopia, Kenya, Niger, Rwanda, Senegal, Uganda, and Zambia on the gendered-differentiated impacts of COVID-19 on men and women in rural areas and the agricultural sector. The Dialogue also offers a forum for policymakers to discuss the findings and explore important elements for the design and implementation of gender-responsive policies and programmes that can minimize the economic, food insecurity, and social impacts of the pandemic.

    The impacts of COVID-19 and policy responses in rural economies - Findings from a local-economy general equilibrium modelling study

    The impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic and government policies to limit its spread are multi-faceted and complex. Market linkages transmit these impacts through economies, from directly affected actors to others in both the urban and rural spheres. Economic contexts, including the structure of local economies, shape the transmission of impacts on rural men and women. Because of this, the pandemic, lockdowns, and mitigation policies influence outcomes in complex ways. In most cases, the magnitudes and even the signs of impacts cannot be determined ex ante. In this study, we use multiple local economy-wide impact evaluation (LEWIE) models to estimate the impacts of the pandemic and lockdowns on rural producers and households in a diversity of economic and agro-climatic settings, using simulation methods. We also examine the likely effects of alternative migitation measures.
