Socio-economic and humanitarian support
On 29 November, UNESCO presented the preliminary findings of the economic consequence of COVID-19 on teachers and education evaluation. According to the report, 72.7 per cent of the respondents thought the health situation in school is acceptable and 54.5 per cent thought that the access to water, availability of toilets and waste management in the school environment is acceptable. The report of the evaluation on the effects of COVID-19 on the most vulnerable population in Cameroon provided important recommendations with a view to respect the “leave no one behind” vision, in particular:
Adapt protection and physical distancing measures to the most vulnerable people, notably the people living with disabilities and older.
Make sure messages are adapted and use the appropriate channels to reach adolescents (boys and girls) and women.
