This brief presents an overview of the work and highlighted the achievements of several key civil society actors in gender-responsive COVID-19 response and recovery across South Asia. These profiles provide insight into lessons learned from the COVID-19 pandemic and offer recommendations on prioritizing the needs of women and girls in COVID-19 recovery efforts. The perspectives shared in this brief belong to the civil society organizations participating in the event “Partnering towards Gender-Responsive Recovery: A Regional Dialogue on Lessons Learned from the COVID-19 Pandemic” held jointly by UN Women Regional Office for Asia and the Pacific and the Korean Women’s Development Institute on 7 December 2022.
