New Issue on COVID-19 Released by EEA

The study on ‘Economic and Welfare Effects of COVID-19 and Responses in Ethiopia: Initial Insights’ has now been released by the Ethiopian Economics Association (EEA). This study investigates and measures the macroeconomic and welfare effects of the pandemic with different scenarios assumed to prevail in rural and urban Ethiopia. It also assesses feasibility of some of the measures taken so far and suggests quick-win interventions relevant to the Ethiopian context. This policy research paper is expected to give preliminary empirical evidence to policy makes, researchers, regional and international organizations, civic societies, and other stakeholders. EEA is highly committed to undertaking further studies on various aspects of the pandemic in Ethiopia.
