UN Socio-economic Impact Assessment (SEIA) of the COVID-19 crisis in BiH

The UN Socio-economic Impact Assessment (SEIA) of the COVID-19 crisis in BiH is intended to inform and guide the policy design of the authorities in BiH in response to COVID-19 over the next 12 to 18 months, and also provide medium- and longer-term policy recommendations, as well as help mobilize resources for recovery. These recommendations can help institutions and other stakeholders build a recovery plan by putting forward aspects of inclusiveness and sustainability.

The SEIA in BiH is based on the UN Secretary-General’s Shared Responsibility, Global Solidarity Report and the global UN operational framework, which includes five pillars: health first, macroeconomic response, economic response and recovery, protecting people, and social cohesion and community resilience. It is based on assessments and studies of COVID-19’s impact by UN agencies, donors and International Financial Institutions (IFIs) and analyses and policy decisions of the authorities in BiH.
