Knowledge Exchange Rise: Refugees and COVID-19: Impact on Food Prices, Consumption, and Distribution

As part of the Refugees, Innovations, Self-reliance and Empowerment (RISE) project, Opportunity is using financial diaries and other human-centered design approaches in order to make informed and appropriate investment decisions. In pre-COVID-19 interviews, 68% of the refugees interviewed were concerned about food price increases. When we repeated the interviews two weeks later, a week after lock down began, these fears were being realized, with 91% of respondents reporting an increase in food prices.
