One year on from the start of the pandemic, this report looks at the impact that COVID-19 has had on youth-led enterprises in the Asia-Pacific. The report, conducted by Youth Co:lab in collaboration with UNDP and Citi Foundation, details how lockdowns, shrinking demand, supply chain disruptions and a credit crunch challenged these enterprises during the pandemic.
