A Novel Virus with Familiar Results: the impact of covid-19 on women in Libya

01.02.2022 / Created by JCSD

In Libya, covid-19 has increased suffering for a population that is already reeling from the scourge of armed conflict, the deterioration of the economy, the high cost of living and the lack of public services.

This report assesses the gendered socio-economic impact of covid-19 on women and girls in Libya. With a gender-based perspective, the report analyses the economic and social impact of the pandemic in Libya from early 2020 until 31 December 2020. Its key findings involve the assessment of how the pandemic affected women’s civil society organisations to assist different stakeholders in addressing women’s issues, and the social and economic impacts of the Covid-19 pandemic on women. 

In its conclusions, the report makes some recommendations to decision-makers, NGOs and International Donors in order to give more visibility and space to women in society.
