Promoting Evidence-based Policies in the Global Alliance of Care

Date: 17 Mar 2022

Promoting Evidence-based Policies in the Global Alliance of Care
Official Side Event of the 66th Commission on the Status of Women

This session contributes to the Global Alliance of Care by highlighting the need for research and evidence to make more effective care policies. In Latin America there are promising examples, but they come with their own challenges. For instance, when care services are expanded, what are the gendered economic outcomes in terms of both jobs created and earnings generated? How does the unpaid and paid workload of women and men change, and who is at risk of time poverty? Join us as we share the most recent research findings that are informing policy responses aiming to recognise, reduce, and redistribute unpaid care work.
