Improving the investment climate through gender sensitive reforms in times of COVID 19

Improving the investment climate through gender sensitive reforms in times of COVID 19

The COVID-19 crisis has taken a greater toll on women in the productive and labour force. Industries with strong women participation have been impacted more than others, creating significant disruptions, and loss of income and jobs. In other cases, when women are able to work remotely, their productivity is negatively affected and domestic violence is on the rise. Gender-sensitive reforms are key for ACP states’ economic recovery. This online event will tackle key questions to build back better such as:

  • How can ACP governments tackle gender sensitive Business Environment Reforms for a sustainable recovery?
  • What is the role of private sector to stop and reverse the widening gender gaps due to the Corona Crisis?
  • How can the current crisis be an opportunity to carry out long due Business Environment Reforms to close gender gaps?

Upcoming events
