This working paper takes stock of early interventions rolled out by governmental and non-governmental actors, in migrants’ home and host countries, to address causes of migrants’ vulnerability during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The paper aims to provide evidence, recommendations and examples of good practice that can inform and strengthen responses to COVID-19 as well as broader crisis management and development efforts, to reduce the risk for migrants and their communities in any crisis situation and support their recovery from its impacts.
