Responding to COVID-19: Winter 2021

2021, 28 pp

Job and related income losses stemming from economic contractions in the face of lockdown and shelter-at-home orders (essential public health measures for combatting the spread of the virus) have disrupted livelihoods for the world’s most vulnerable communities, be they refugees and other displaced peoples or residents of population-dense, low-income neighborhoods or farmers in remote areas. The lives of vulnerable communities around the world have become even more precarious during the pandemic, with socially and economically marginalized peoples disproportionately impacted by COVID- 19’s health and economic fallout. In this issue of Intersections, MCC staff from around the world examine how MCC and its partners have operated during this pandemic, adapting humanitarian assistance, livelihood, health, education and other initiatives to meet the ever-evolving challenges presented by COVID-19.
