Facing Multiple Crises: Rapid assessment of the impact of COVID-19 on vulnerable workers and small-scale enterprises in Lebanon

The assessment sheds light on some of the pressing issues and concerns that workers are facing today—in terms of employment, source of income, current economic conditions, and prospects for the immediate future. It also addresses the effects of the pandemic on small-scale businesses, as well as their coping and adaptation strategies.

The assessment was conducted by the International Labour Organization (ILO) and the Fafo Institute for Labour and Social Research (Fafo), in collaboration with the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), the International Rescue Committee (IRC), the Danish Refugee Council (DRC), Save the Children International, Mercy Corps, Oxfam and UNWomen. It is based on a selected sample of 1,987 Lebanese nationals and Syrian refugees, who have participated in programmes implemented by the agencies and organizations involved in the report.
