Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC) and the
United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) have predicted that the social
and economic effects of the ongoing pandemic will have a significant
impact on the well-being of families with children and adolescents in
Latin America and the Caribbean. Even before the COVID-19 crisis,
children and adolescents were already a highly vulnerable population
group, suffering a higher incidence of poverty than other age groups and
affected by numerous inequalities in various dimensions. Not only does
the current emergency threaten families with the loss of their
livelihoods and a drop in their incomes, children and adolescents also
face significant barriers in securing access to health care —including
vaccination schemes— and to education. Thus, they are also at a higher
risk of falling behind or dropping out of school, as well as at risk
from food insecurity and threats of violence or physical punishment. It
is therefore urgent to invest in children and to ensure their
development in a context characterized by adversities old and new.

This report investigates how COVID-19 and other shocks have impacted child well-being in sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) during 2020 and the potential role of cash transfers and external resources to help children and economies. It reviews the latest social, economic and financial information from a range of global databases and modelling exercises, draws on emerging country-level reporting and carries out projections where recent data are unavailable. Although information remains incomplete and things are quickly evolving, the outlook is alarming.

Globally, as more people are at home than ever, due to pandemic-related measures and lockdowns, the need for household chores and child care has multiplied. But who is shouldering these increased burdens, and by how much have they increased? To answer this question, UN Women has been gathering new and eye-opening data.
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.
