This case study from The Gambia Red Cross Society (GRCS), in close collaboration with Spanish Red Cross (SpRC), provides insight on the implementation of CVA activities in The Gambia to address the impact of the pandemic on livelihoods. Considering women are more likely to be hardest hit economically by Covid-19 since they are usually more engaged in low-paid, insecure jobs and the informal economy, a gender lens has been applied in the concrete design and implementation of this programme.
