WFP project: Urban response to COVID-19 in Kenya

 The World Food Programme (WFP) has asked the migration team at UNU-MERIT and its School of Governance to evaluate an urban response intervention in Nairobi. The intervention aims to provide life-saving humanitarian support to poor households residing in informal settlements who are unable to meet their basic food and nutrition requirements due to compromised access to income-earning opportunities resulting from COVID-19 related government restrictions. The programme will be evaluated using remote data collection methods, both quantitive and qualitative. The team from UNU-MERIT is headed by Dr. Sonja Fransen.
