Post Pandemic: Driving Inclusive Growth in Asia
This event series, hosted by the Asian Bureau of Finance and Economic Research (ABFER), Harvard University's Center for International Development (CID), and Harvard University's Lakshmi Mittal and Family South Asia Institute (LMSAI), will focus on the unique challenges and opportunities faced by many Asian countries recovering from the COVID-19 pandemic.

In a region containing over half of the world's population and key global powers such as China and India, the pandemic has caused massive shifts in healthcare, economics, and education that affect billions. This series aims to catalyze research on what steps can be taken in the region to not only recover, but also chart a new course that ensures even the most vulnerable in society are included in the post-pandemic boom.

Session 1, January 19
Education in Asia: Post Pandemic

This session will discuss the significant and unequal educational losses COVID-19 has caused, and also seek to identify some of the lessons learnt. The panel hopes to identify and support positive pivot points so that the region can emerge from this tragedy stronger, more resilient, and perhaps with some innovative ideas that can help improve education for all.
