Assessment of the Socio-Economic Impact of the COVID-19 Pandemic on Children and their Families, with a focus on the PWD

Description

PROJECT TITLE: Assessment of the Socio-Economic Impact of the COVID-19 Pandemic on Children and their Families, with a focus on the vulnerable ones in Cape Coast Metropolitan Areas in Central Region, Ghana.
PURPOSE: Assess the socio-economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on children and families, with a particular focus on the most vulnerable, after the peak of the Covid-19 pandemic to enable LFHO and other actors to design response actions that address the impact of the COVID19 pandemic with a view to minimize its negative impacts on human development in Cape Coast Metropolitan Area in Central Region of Ghana.
PROJECT BACKGROUND AND RATIONALE
The current COVID-19 outbreak in Ghana is exacerbating the specific and existing vulnerabilities of children, families and communities. In order to support the Government with (i) a better understanding of the socioeconomic impact of the pandemic on the most vulnerable children and women; and (ii) identification of the most adequate policy measures to mitigate the negative impact of the pandemic, LFHO has put in place the following two-pronged assessment strategy:
Phase 1: Rapid Assessments (March-July 2020): Conduct high-frequency monitoring surveys to gain an initial understanding of the situation of children and their families, with a focus on the vulnerable ones, during the COVID-19 outbreak1. At the time of writing this concept note, all four assessments have been completed
The findings of the Rapid Assessments completed so far show that children living in poverty, children, children with disabilities, children with special educational needs, children living in overcrowded and poverty areas and unaccompanied children are among the most affected categories by COVID-19 pandemic. At community level, one of the most powerful effects of the COVID-19 pandemic is determined by the slowdown of the economic activities which resulted in job loss, lack or work opportunities. To these are added the return of persons who worked abroad and an increase in cases of domestic violence. Health services have been negatively affected by the pandemic mostly in relation to visits to general practitioners, specialist outpatient clinics and hospitals. As concerns educational services, teaching, assessment ] are among the most mentioned affected services. Social services have also been affected by the pandemic with day care centres and habilitation/rehabilitation services for children with disabilities mentioned most often by the respondents.
The Phase 2: Socio-Economic Impact assessment (November 2020 – May 2021; tentative): Conduct an-in depth assessment to measure the socio-economic impact of the crisis on children and families, with a focus on the most vulnerable in Cape Coast Metropolitan Area.
This in-depth assessment will cover a wide range of topics, covering macro-economic impact, poverty impact, and social impact.
More specifically, the Socio-Economic Impact Assessment will be conducted to gauge the impact of the epidemic and its consequences on the protection/psychosocial wellbeing of vulnerable children/families2, their most pressing needs, to collect evidence as basis for response planning, advocacy, policy recommendations, allocation of resources while at the same time giving them a voice. Beyond, it aims at understanding the impact on the social/health/education services, social/health/education workforce and on the capacity of the social services for children and social assistance benefits/child protection/health/ education systems to respond.
It is aimed to provide timely evidence for LFHO, the Government and other development partners to design and implement effective policy responses and recovery strategies in order to mitigate the short, medium and long-term socio-economic impact of the Covid-19 crisis on children and their families, with a focus on the vulnerable ones, and on national systems (e.g. health, education, social services for children and social assistance benefits). It will be a child-centered, gender and diversity-sensitive assessment that will identify a series of policy and programme recommendations that address the age, gender and diversity-specific vulnerabilities

PROJECT SPECIFIC OBJECTIVES
Gain a better understanding on how the Covid-19 pandemic and its immediate aftermath and response impacted the lives of communities/children and their families, with a focus on the vulnerable ones (as much as possible through differentiated analyses on different vulnerable groups, such as children with disabilities, children living in poverty and other vulnerable groups), by: o assessing the economic impact, including impact on key macro-economic indicators and household employment; o assessing the monetary and non-monetary impact on poverty among the general population and children; o assessing the social impact on four critical sectors for children: (i) education; (ii) health; (iii) social protection; and (iv) child protection; understand the impact on the social services/health workforce and the capacity of the social services for children/child protection/health/education systems and to respond to the needs of vulnerable children and their families; o estimate the cost and impact of policy and programmatic interventions to address COVID-19’s impact on monetary and multidimensional child poverty or material deprivations., including (i) cash transfers (amount and duration), (ii) unemployment benefits for parents who lost jobs due to COVID-19 (amount and duration), and (iii) social assistance programmes; o providing policy and programme recommendations to mitigate the negative socio-economic impact on the most vulnerable children and women. • Ensure the voice of children and families are heard and they have the opportunity to speak about the most pressing problems they face, about their needs and propose solutions that build on their existing capacities and coping mechanisms. • Generate well founded and evidence- based policy and programme recommendations to address the situation of vulnerable children.

PARTNERS
Our partner shall be UNICEF Ghana, Ministry of Gender, Children and Social Protection, Accra-Ghana, Department of Children, Cape Coast Metropolitan Assembly, PWDs Association, Ministry of Education, Ghana Education Service, Special Schools in Ghana.

METHODOLOGICAL APPROCAH
The Socio-Economic Impact Assessment will use a mix of three methods: (i) desk review; (ii) primary data collection; and (iii) modeling of poverty impact and simulations of costs. The findings of the study will be representative at national level.

(i) Desk review of the available information/data on the COVID-19 impact in Romania and response measures taken by national authorities and interventions developed by the NGOs by reviewing and analyzing information, studies and documents on the socio-economic impact of the COVID-19 crisis. A list with available studies and research will be drafted by UNICEF team in collaboration with the partners and shared with the research team. It will also use existing administrative data, in combination with other available data and projections (e.g. by prognosis institutes) that would allow simulations over the immediate and medium term, EUROSTAT and survey
4

data available (EU-SILC, Household Budget Survey, Labour Force Survey, statistical reports/bulletins), data from the Phase I Rapid Assessment of the situation of children and families, with a focus on the vulnerable ones during the COVID-19 outbreak (by UNICEF and partners).

(ii) Primary data collection

a/ Quantitative data A household survey representative at national level (key informants: children and families, with a focus on the vulnerable ones: Roma children, children with disabilities, children living in poverty, asylum seeking/refugee children and unaccompanied children) will be conducted and have in view the following key dimensions: employment, poverty (monetary and multidimensional) and socio-economic exclusion, as well as secondary impacts, such as psychological stress, all forms of violence and abuse, stigma and discrimination (data disaggregated by age, gender, vulnerability, disability, urban/rural, migration and socioeconomic status to the extent possible). Data will be collected from department and Agenmcies dealing with children in Cape Coast Metropolitan Assembly. A good balance between urban and rural areas shall be considered. The sample size – a representative one at national level – will be determined by the research team. An over-sampling will be considered for children, children with disabilities and their families.

b/ Qualitative data Primary qualitative data will be collected at community level and directly from vulnerable children and their families (e.g. children living in poverty, children, children in residential care, children with disabilities etc.), key informants at community, Districts and national levels, including civil society/community- based organizations. Methods: semi-structured interviews and focus-groups (to determine how it will be appropriate to conduct them – online and/or in the field – considering the COVID-19 situation in the Ghana and reaching the vulnerable groups).

(iii) Modelling and simulations

Using the available data, the following projections will be made:

1) Economic impact: Analysis of the impact of the pandemic on the overall economy, with a particular focus on key macro-economic indicators and households’ employment (the impact on migratory/seasonal work and lack of remittances is an important aspect to be considered), and the possible effects on child well-being. 2) Poverty (monetary and non-monetary) impact: (i) Under certain macroeconomic projections and scenarios, estimate the potential changes in the poverty profile of the population (poverty rates, including child poverty, for different groups, including vulnerable children and other categories, children with disabilities, analysis, if possible; analysis of income and loss and how these affect the welfare of different types/profiles of households); (ii) visualise the results using interactive tools. 3) Impact on child-related sectors and access to services: education, health, social protection. Estimation of potential increase of the gaps in service access, learning and health outcomes between households from different socio-economic backgrounds or from disadvantaged communities/counties. 4) Cost of response estimates. Estimate the cost and impact of policy and programmatic interventions, including (i) cash transfers (amount and duration), (ii) unemployment benefits for parents who lost jobs due to COVID-19 (amount and duration), and (iii) social assistance programmes to address COVID-19’s impact on monetary and multidimensional child poverty or material deprivations. Preliminary assessments of the impacts of government measures will be conducted as part of the desk review to see: Are they targeting the right groups? Does the support reach those most in need? Is the support effective or not? Which gaps can be observed?

Policy and programme recommendations: Develop concrete (and potentially costed) policy and programmes recommendations on a short, medium and long-term based on the analysis above (e.g. social inclusion, reducing the inequity gap).

Limitations
Children and their families will be the key informants. Limitations of the methodology are related to the pandemic and to the fact that the interviews may need to be at least conducted by phone/Skype/WhatsApp or similar means. Innovative data collection solutions should be sought by applicants through partnerships with IT companies in order to be able to reach the vulnerable groups.

Reporting and dissemination
Based on the data analysis, a report will be produced providing an in-depth analysis of the data, conclusions and recommendations. The structure of the report will be agreed in consultation with Artist Relief Project and key partners. The draft report will be shared with Artist Relief Project and partners for feedback.
The report will be disseminated to Artist Relief Project and our key partners, other international organizations and Cape Coast Metropolitan Assembly for discussion and further action.
