Rapid gender assessment: The impact of COVID-19 on women and men in North Macedonia

Authors/editor(s): Marija Bashevska (author), Gretchen Luchsinger Sidhu (editor), Indago (reseach company)

The Rapid Gender Assessment (RGA) was conducted to assess the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on women and men in North Macedonia, and how the changing situation is affecting the socio-economic situation and livelihoods. The assessment provides an overview of the pre-crisis situation and changes with the onset of the pandemic and will serve as data source to support policymaking initiatives to address the gendered impacts of the pandemic.

This assessment was produced in the framework of the UN Women project “Promoting gender responsive policies and budgets: Towards transparent, inclusive and accountable governance in the Republic of North Macedonia”, funded by the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation and the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency – Sida.
