A market study with potential COVID-19 impact analysis
This value chain study looks at the market actors in eight districts in Hajjah, Hodeida, Lahj, Abyan and Taiz. The study objectives were to identify the current challenges and opportunities among the value chain actors in these targeted locations. The study is to inform Enhanced Rural Resilience in Yemen (ERRY II) programming and assist in identifying areas for improving the value chain. Data were collected via surveys, focus group discussions, and key informant interviews. A separate synthesis report describes the study methodology and sampling strategy. The study analysis started in December 2019 and with the arrival of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, opportunities were found to provide insight into the potential impact of the virus crisis on the sectors.
