Covid-19 Snapshot

In the midst of work on The State of Children’s Rights and Business in Southeast Asia 2020 the global pandemic of COVID-19 hit, and while we were analysing annual reports for 2019, the situation in real time changed rapidly. As the Global Child Forum benchmark is based on publicly available information primarily covering annual year 2019, those information sources are unlikely to acknowledge the impact that the pandemic is having on operations or their responses to it, including those policies that protect children. This report, jointly written by the Global Child Forum and ELEVATE, attempts an overview of how COVID-19 is impacting the Southeast Asia region, including its impacts on children—while being cognizant of the fact that this is a multi-faceted issue that is still very much in flux.
