Assessing the impact of COVID-19 in Asia and the Pacific and designing policy responses: An Excel-based model

COVID-19 is an unprecedented socio-economic crisis and calls for unprecedented policy responses. Asia-Pacific region is no exception.

In this context, an Excel-based model is developed to help countries ensure effective policy design and to align policy responses with the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. The model produces a snapshot of the socio-economic situation facing the country/territory, and allows simple policy scenarios to be studied.

Youth Voices for Climate Action Campaign

The Youth Voices for Climate Action (YV4CA) campaign serves as an inclusive platform for youth in the Asia-Pacific region to make their voices heard on climate action. By making your voice heard on this critical issue, you can inspire others to do the same and move policy makers in your country to accelerate climate action. Contribute your voice or apply as an Advocate today and join a community of action-oriented youth.
