The Covid-19 pandemic, like other major crises, has left already vulnerable groups such as women and children even more vulnerable. The pandemic has exacerbated challenges across various facets of social and economic life, such as domestic violence, female labour force participation, and access to healthcare, information, and financial protection, to name a few.
To ensure a holistic recovery to the Covid-19 crisis, it is essential to address these gender gaps. The first step is to be certain that we are accurately measuring the impacts and consequences of the crisis on women and other vulnerable groups. This is a key function of the Global Evaluation Initiative’s thematic focus on Gender and Inclusion.
This webinar will feature research on the gendered impacts of Covid-19 from across South Asia. Presenters will explore the evidence on the differential impacts of the pandemic from Bangladesh, India, and Indonesia, and how learnings from these evaluations can inform recovery and further enhance the socio-economic security of vulnerable women across contexts.
This webinar is part of the Islamic Development Bank’s (IsDB) Evaluation Symposium 2022, centred around the theme of ‘Reshaping Evaluation Through the Lens of Recovery’. The symposium will bring together experts and practitioners to focus on the use of evaluation knowledge and tools to promote effective development and policy-making.
