The report of the Business Survey, was undertaken with the support from the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), to assess the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on various businesses in Zambia.
The results of the survey show that Covid-19 had a major impact on businesses in Zambia.
Seventy-one percent (71%) of the respondents indicated that their businesses were partially closed while fourteen percent were totally closed. Only fifteen percent reported to have maintained normal operations. The Education, Transport and Catering and Accommodation Sectors have been particularly impacted by Covid-19 while other sectors were almost not affected. Eighty-five percent (85%) businesses working in education reported to be completely closed, while sixty percent (60%) of businesses in the human health and social work sector maintained normal operations.
UNDP works with the Government and people of Zambia to achieve the vision 2030 , the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the implementation of the 7th National Development Plan.
Organisationally we are structured around four distinct and yet interlinked programmatic areas, namely, environment and energy, governance and gender, poverty reduction and SDGs; and health systems strengthening for the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria.
