Impact of COVID-19 on Women Workers in the Horticulture Sector in Uganda

This rapid assessment report is part of a large initiative led by Hivos East Africa in collaboration with Women@Work partners to promote decent work for women in the global horticulture supply chain and focuses on the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on women in the horticulture sector. The rapid assessment was conducted through a phone survey carried out between April 29 and May 11, 2020.

The assessment of the impact on workers presented in this report will inform and shape industry/policy measures that will be introduced to mitigate the negative impacts of the pandemic on flower farm workers, specifically women.
