Fighting COVID-19 in Ukraine: Initial estimates of the impact on poverty

COVID-19 is a unique crisis, in the sense that its socio-economic impact is highly dependent on the outcomes of the health pandemic and lockdown strategies. Despite the high degree of uncertainty, we present here the first projections of the impact of COVID-19 on poverty, including child poverty, and the most vulnerable groups in Ukraine. The results are derived from microsimulations based on the household budget survey (HBS). This report is a live document, which will be updated regularly as new information appears.
