Description

The COVID-19 pandemic has had devastating consequences for progress towards gender equality in Asia. The UN Women’s Rapid Gender Assessment—which provides snapshots on how the region’s women and girls have experienced the pandemic—is helping expose the extent of these impacts and their implications for the region’s recovery. The panelists will discuss the research and policy implications, with a specific focus on the future of work for women in Asia.

  • Hear the results of the latest round of UN Women’s Rapid Gender Assessment, which was supported by ADB.
  • Understand how the impacts on women and girls in Asia have evolved after two years of the pandemic.
