Title: Standing Up to the Challenge: Response to the COVID-19 Pandemic in Asia and the Pacific Source: UN Women Author: UN Women Publication Date: December 2020 Summary and content relevant to BHC:
This report presents some highlights from the past year of the pandemic. It traces what UN Women did to secure access to emergency hygiene and immediate relief, sustain life-saving essential services for escalating cases of violence against women and girls, integrate gender into national and sub-national crisis response strategies, and make women’s economic empowerment, both in terms of paid and unpaid labor, a fulcrum for resilience and recovery. Case studies in this report provide entry points and lessons learned on how to adapt programming and integrate women and girls in the COVID-19 response and recovery efforts.
