Case study on the impact of Covid 19 on Education in Asia-Pacific focusing on Social Protection

The Asia South Pacific Association for Basic and Adult Education developed its informative infographic about the case study on the Impact of COVID-19 on Education Financing. The themes are as follows- Learners with Disabilities, Mental Health, Girls’ Education, Social Protection, and Virtual Learning. 

The COVID-19 pandemic has had a significant impact on education in the Asia-Pacific region, with a particular focus on social protection. The closure of schools and other educational institutions has led to learning disruptions for millions of children and youth. This has had a disproportionate impact on the most vulnerable groups, including girls, children from rural areas, and children with disabilities.

The pandemic has also exacerbated existing social protection gaps in the region. Many families have lost their incomes, making it difficult for them to afford school fees, transportation, and other educational expenses. This has led to an increase in school dropout rates, particularly among girls.

There are a number of things that can be done to mitigate the impact of COVID-19 on education in the Asia-Pacific region. These include:

  • Providing financial assistance to families to help them cover the costs of education.
  • Expanding access to digital learning platforms so that students can continue learning even if schools are closed.
  • Providing targeted support to the most vulnerable groups, such as girls and children from rural areas.
  • Investing in social protection programs to help families cope with the economic impact of the pandemic. 

By taking these steps, we can help to ensure that all children and youth in the Asia-Pacific region have access to quality education, regardless of their circumstances.
