Country profiles

The European Union
Co-financed by the European Union

This series of country profiles describe how countries have reacted to COVID-19 and specifically: (i) measures enacted by governments to contain the spread of the virus; (ii) policies to stabilize the functioning of agri-food systems; (iii) potential effects of policies on agri-food systems and vulnerable groups. Finally, they also assess longer-term options for agri-food system policies and investments so as to make them more resilient. 

The series has been produced by the network of policy officers of the Food and nutrition security Impact, Resilience, Sustainability and Transformation (FIRST) Programme, in close collaboration with country governments, FAO representations and European Union Delegations. In some countries, FIRST has joined forces with the Global Network against Food Crises.

National agrifood systems and COVID-19 in Nigeria

Some parts of Nigeria are facing an increasingly grave humanitarian crisis. It is likely that the COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated an already critical food security situation in many States. Also, a number of structural factors have a strong potential for exacerbating the impact of the pandemic on food security, nutrition and the management of the food system. These factors require short- and long-term policy measures and responses from all stakeholders. This report describes: (i) policy measures enacted by the government to contain the spread of the virus; (ii) policies and measures to stabilize the functioning of agri-food systems; (iii) potential effects of policies on agri-food systems and vulnerable groups. Finally, the profiles also assess longer-term options for agri-food system policies and investments in Nigeria so as to make them more resilient.

National agrifood systems and COVID-19 in Uganda

The Government of Uganda has established a national incident management structure under the Office of the Prime Minister (OPM) to provide a coordinated response to the COVID-19 crisis. While the central government has demonstrated its capacity to lead the fight against the pandemic, local governments have demonstrated limited capacity to effectively respond to the COVID-19 outbreak; this prompted the central government to take on most of the responsibility for managing the spread of the disease and providing key services. There are growing concerns that the centralization of most activities related to the management of COVID-19 may limit future capacity development efforts at the local government level.

National agrifood systems and COVID-19 in Sierra Leone

The Republic of Sierra Leone reported its first confirmed case of COVID-19 on 31 March 2020. Although this was later than many countries in the region, the number of cases and deaths in the country have risen since then. As of 28 August 2020, there were a total of 2 013 confirmed cases, with 70 deaths and 1 581 recoveries. Cases have now been reported in 14 districts outside of the Western Area. The fatality rate has been high relative to other countries in the ECOWAS (Economic Community of West African States) region.

Since the pandemic began, the Government of Sierra Leone (GoSL) has implemented several policies and measures designed to curb the spread of the disease. At the time of writing, all measures are still in place except where explicitly noted (IMF, 2020a; OECD, 2020).
