The economic impact of measures taken to prevent the spread of COVID-19 is having a devastating effect on people affected by conflict and displacement. Exaggerating numerous pre-existing vulnerabilities and challenges, COVID-19 are causing refugees and displaced people to lose work and income. This, in turn, makes it even harder for them to feed their families, keep a roof over their heads, and send their children to school.

Based on a survey of 1,400 people affected by conflict and displacement in eight countries, this report explores the economic impact of COVID-19 on refugees and displaced people.
