The global Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has not only impacted health, lives, and economies, but also the labour market and the education sector. Governments, policymakers, private sector groups, trade unions, and other stakeholders are attempting to respond to rapidly changing circumstances.

It leverages reports, opinion pieces as well as primary data on COVID-19. Its purpose is to provide a reflection on the COVID-19 experiences of Kenya and South Africa on youth skills development and employment through observations, insights and lessons for the future.
