This policy brief aims to complement the work being done by Government ministries, donors, United Nations agencies, International Non-Government Organisations (INGOs) and other research organisations on the socio-economic impact of COVID-19. It is based on desk study review of relevant research papers and reports and World Vision International’s experience in BBB, both in Nepal and other countries, in particular in the Asia Pacific region.
The structure of this brief is as follows: first, the existing BBB Framework will be reviewed, then a revised BBB Framework is proposed, which is contextualized for Nepal and focuses on economic and social recovery. Evidence of the immediate socio-economic impact of COVID-19 from a field rapid assessment and relevant desk review relevant to BBB will be presented. It will conclude with suggested recommendations (pp. 7-11) for BBB policy, programming and implementation.
