The consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic are especially severe for people in fragile countries where health systems, government structures and social safety nets are weak. The impacts both highlight and deepen social inequalities. The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) has produced a fragility analysis for Iraq to explore how the COVID-19 pandemic and diminishing oil revenues affect the country’s fragility. The analysis applies a multidimensional concept of fragility based on the methodology developed by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD).
