This publication offers a comprehensive regional-level analysis of Southeast Asia’s fragile recovery from the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) that damaged some core economic drivers and sank millions into poverty. It gives a rundown of how eight Southeast Asian countries have dealt with the pandemic and are now beginning to recover. It looks at how countries have reshaped their economies to cope with the crisis and considers the impact of job losses as COVID-19 sent development gains into reverse. Against a backdrop of global economic headwinds and looming climate change, it offers a range of recommendations for how policymakers can best weave lessons from the pandemic into their drive for a resilient and inclusive recovery.
