The COVID-19 pandemic is having a devastating impact on businesses across Asia-Pacific. Many are closed while others are struggling to maintain operations while ensuring the safety of their workers. Small and medium enterprises (SMEs) - which comprise more than 90% of all businesses in most Asia-Pacific countries- are especially hard hit. This webinar will highlight how businesses from different sectors have been impacted by the crisis but are also adapting their business practices to withstand the economic consequences of COVID-19. It will also offer practical guidance and tools to SMEs to enable them to emerge more resilient in recovery.
This webinar is the third in a series of webinars on COVID-19 organized by UNDRR’s Regional Office for Asia and the Pacific. As the first region to be impacted by COVID-19, Asia-Pacific has become the testing ground for innovations and solutions to tackle this global disaster.
We aim to use these webinars to distil in 60 minutes the most relevant information and actionable recommendations on priority topics to support countries in their prevention, response and recovery efforts. Issue briefs will be shared on the webinar topics that capture emerging lessons and policy recommendations.
