International Development Research @ Cambridge


This diary-based project sought to understand the livelihood impacts of COVID-19 on more vulnerable young people in Indonesia and Nepal. In partnership with the Asian Development Bank, Restless Development and the University of Cambridge, nearly 1500 diaries were collected from 100 young people, giving insight into how labor and education disruptions have impacted their daily lives and futures. 

The findings from this project have now been published in Restless Development's state of youth civil society report
