UNDP Mongolia conducted a rapid socio-economic assessment on the impact of COVID-19 prevention measures on vulnerable groups and value chains, in Mongolia, between March 30th and April 10th, 2020.
The pandemic is affecting everyone and threatening progress made towards achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). This assessment will contribute to defining development responses during the COVID-19 crisis, while also ensuring that no one is left behind and safeguarding progress on the SDGs.
The assessment is specifically focused on vulnerable groups including households with persons with disabilities; households that have migrated to and from Ulaanbaatar city in the past 2 years; single mother households; youth, the elderly and herders. Surveys were held with these groups in 6 aimags (provinces), Sukhbaatar, Darkhan-Uul, Umnugovi, Orkhon, Zavkhan and Govi Altai, and 6 districts of Ulaanbaatar city.
