In South Africa, informal workers in general, and women informal workers in particular, have been disproportionately hard hit by measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19. This policy brief provides details of the impacts on informal workers' livelihoods of pandemic restriction orders and recommends various measures to avert chronic hardship.
This brief is part of the WIEGO Publication Series and is among the outputs of a joint WIEGO and UN Women project.
