UNHCR in Cameroon in partnership with WFP organized a rapid assessment on the socioeconomic impact of COVID-19 on Central African refugees in the eastern part of the country. The objective of the assessment was to understand the socioeconomic impact on refugee households livelihoods and estimate their resilience capacity in the case of a lock down due to the pandemic. The study aimed to identify the economic activities undertaken by refugees in the area, identify which of these activities and related sectors was or could be most impacted and propose a response plan to respond to shocks and reinforce the resilience capacity. 275 people were interviewed over the phone to collect data for the assessment.
