Researchers from the three countries will present:

- The impacts of Covid-19 based on access to basic needs, employment, income loss, food security, shocks and coping mechanism, safety nets in the lens of gender, and other socio-demographic factors and how these findings should inform policies for meaningful youth engagement and social accountability.
