The economic impact of public health measures to prevent the spread of the Covid-19 pandemic is having a devastating effect on communities affected by conflict and displacement. Compounding numerous existing crises and challenges, Covid-19 related travel restrictions, the closure of markets and businesses, and the general economic downturn are causing these communities 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. This report is based on a survey of 1,400 people affected by conflict and displacement in eight countries, and more detailed surveys and needs assessment in a total of 14 countries.

Even before the coronavirus pandemic shuttered schools around the
world, disrupting the education of almost 1.6 billion students according
to UNICEF, classrooms were closed to millions of displaced children. Less than half of school-aged refugee children were enrolled while
only one in four were attending secondary school. Months-long school
closures risk reversing small gains recently made in expanding access to
education for refugee children.
UNICEF Innocenti's Children and COVID-19 Library is a database collecting research from around the world on COVID-19 and its impacts on children and adolescents.
