COVID-19 Recovery Needs Assessment (CRNA)

The COVID-19 Recovery Needs Assessment (CRNA) is a tool to help national governments to assess the social and economic impacts of COVID-19. It builds on the experience of over 70 Post-Crisis assessments undertaken within the partnership between United Nations, World Bank Group, and European Union under the 2008 Joint Declaration on Post Crisis Assessment and Recovery Planning. The methodology draws from the post disaster needs assessment and recovery and peacebuilding assessment methodologies. By bringing in key stakeholders, such as the EU, WB and other MDBs, bilateral donors, and civil society, under a coordinated and government-led process that does a macro, meso and micro analysis and develops recovery needs with costs, the CRNA can ensure alignment of the development community behind one comprehensive government-led strategy, which can be converted to common planning and financing outcomes.
