The COVID-19 crisis continues to have a significant impact on people’s lives – in terms of jobs, livelihoods, delivery of basic services – and particularly for those already in vulnerable situations, who have been hit the hardest.
The speed and scale of the spread, the severity of cases, and the societal and economic disruption is dramatic for all citizens. At the same time, gaps in institutional set-up, effectiveness and capacities are exposed. The inadequacy of the system has become more evident with the sharp increase of social vulnerability because of the pandemic.
The Social Assistance Scheme (SAS) in Kosovo absorbs approximately 88% of the budget for social assistance with the relative total spending on SAS declining over the last decade. The pandemic has exposed a series of gaps in the governance system which has affected the work of institutions and service delivery not least in provision of social services; it has directly affected the work of Centers for Social Work (CSWs) as they are also engaged in other activities to help citizens. Social workers, like much health professionals, are concerned about the impact of the pandemics on their well-being, the people to whom they provide services, their families, and others in the community.
To address some of these issues, the ‘Response to COVID-19 Emergency and Early Recovery Support’, financed by EU Office in Kosovo and implemented by UNDP, in close cooperation with the Ministry of Finance, Labour, and Transfers/Department for Social Policies and Family Planning enhanced the provision of social services by CSWs and improved access to equitable, qualitative, integrated social protection for the most vulnerable groups, including women and girls.
As such, the HAP project was designed to support Kosovo’s efforts to respond to COVID-19 emergency and early recovery focusing on:
The primary target group are people and individuals living in poverty or at risk of socio-economic marginalization; who will be further stratified to include single mothers/women heads of households, minority communities particularly Roma, Ashkali and Egyptians, women victims of or at risk of gender-based violence, abuse, or domestic violence; people living in remote rural areas who experience difficulties to access social facilities and services.
As the project entered its final stage of implementation, the project will hire an International Evaluation Consultant to conduct a final project evaluation to assess the overall progress towards the expected results and provide recommendations for future similar interventions.
