25 Mar 2021 Zimbabwe Download

This socio-economic survey sought to assess the impact of COVID-19 on returnees and the plans of returnees who came to Zimbabwe during the COVID-19 lockdown period to ascertain whether they intend to settle in Zimbabwe permanently or they plan migrate to their host countries. The socio-economic survey aimed at establishing the needs, challenges, vulnerabilities, demographics and coping mechanisms used by returnees to respond to their challenges.

This survey is the second Socio-Economic survey (R2), since the breakout of the COVID-19 virus. The preliminary results of the first one (R1) can be found here. This report focuses on the findings of the second round survey, however reference and comparison will be made to R1 in some cases of the findings.
