Organizational Context & Project Description

As the COVID-19 has progressed, Governments are implementing measures to prevent further virus spread, including school closures and travel restrictions. The crisis is expected to have major socio-economic and macro-economic impact, especially across industries experiencing supply chain disruption like the apparel manufacturing, or the hospitality and transport sector as travel bans and consumer anxieties impact on tourism and business travel. Workers remain vulnerable as trade and services have been hit significantly, with manufacturing and hospitality sector losses mounting –private sector Associations and Chambers have already requesting Government support. As the private sector is impacted, workers will be vulnerable to unplanned layoffs, with a potential devastating impact on household income across already vulnerable groups. The implications and economic impacts require government policies and other measures to remedy the social fallout.

The source of income for many communities and vulnerable groupings is now under serious threat; and significant adverse economic impact is expected on businesses and workers around the world, especially workers with limited job security, as the crisis lengthens. The health-related impact of this crisis on labour and income opportunity loss, as well as the additional costs of healthcare (i.e. curative and preventive), pose serious challenges for vulnerable households that bear such costs. Although health care services are generally capable and well prepared (preventively and curatively), there are still risks of lack of access to information and health care services, particularly in poorer and more vulnerable settings, contexts and regions. There is also the potential for global supply stock-outs of medicines and health care PPE if global supply chains of medicines and equipment is disrupted.

An early focus on likely socio-economic impact of COVID-19 on the poor and vulnerable is, therefore, important to consider. The UN seeks to better understand the potential impact on health and livelihoods of poor and vulnerable households as well as the response measures needed to support those most vulnerable groups. On this background, the Bangkok Regional Hub (BRH), Socio-economic Recovery & Livelihoods Programme, will be supporting Country Offices in the region in assessing health and socio-economic livelihoods impacts, especially segments of the population whose livelihoods are under threat. The data analyst will be supporting livelihood data collection and analysis, plus developing a dashboard with updated data visualizations to inform program development and communicate findings.
