Countries: Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Maldives, Nepal, Pakistan, Sri Lanka Source: UN Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific ABSTRACT South Asia has been severely impacted by COVID-19 with more than 20,000 deaths, around one million confirmed cases, and many millions of workers unemployed. The pandemic and the need for social distancing have also constrained the responses to cyclones, floods and other climate-related disasters. Nevertheless, the pandemic also brings opportunities for directing economic stimulus packages towards investments in disaster-resilient infrastructure and services that will support a greener and more productive future.
