Project Abstract

Given this, the major objective of the assessment is to expose the risks that confront, in the context of the global Covid-19 pandemic, seasonal migrant agricultural workers and their children as one of the most vulnerable and invisible groups in society and to contribute to the development of policies to minimize these risks. The study will also analyse possible effects of the losses of workforce and work which are the results of the measures taken against the outbreak on agricultural production and daily life in general. In this context the rapid assessment report first presents a framework related to what is happening in the world in relation to the impact of the Covid-19 outbreak on agricultural production. This is followed by an analysis on how counter-outbreak measures adopted in Turkey in the period 25 March – 15 April 2020 affected the employment of migrant agricultural workers in the sample provinces of Adana, Ankara, Bolu, Çorum, Giresun, Isparta, Konya and Sakarya. The assessment was designed to reach four fundamental data sets by using three different methods. The first is the desk study carried out by the research team. Developments taking place in the world and in Turkey in the period 15 March 2020 – 20 April 2020 were followed on the press and statements made by relevant agencies and the survey design was completed on the basis of findings obtained from this assessment.
