WeProsper’s UNGA Side event

On September 22, WeProsper, the global Women’s Economic Empowerment Hub, held an unofficial United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) side event.

The hybrid event brought together policymakers, researchers, and CSOs for a vibrant discussion on how to mainstream care considerations in traditional infrastructure, how care intersects with climate change, and how this relates to sustainable and inclusive economies. This event focused discussions on how investments in aspects of social infrastructure, such as long-term care (LTC) services, provide clear economic benefits. These investments create more jobs than traditional infrastructure, while also fulfilling care needs that impact unpaid caregivers’ ability to participate in the labor force. The event also explored the intersection of climate change and care, as the impacts of climate change are exacerbating time spent on domestic responsibilities like water collection.
