Why gender responsive budgeting

Women are disproportionately shouldering the burden of unpaid care and domestic work triggered by the lockdowns, and they are losing their livelihoods faster than men. The  World Bank report 2020 indicate women constitute between 60 to 80 percent of the labor force in the global value chain for apparel. The volume of order cancellations in the apparel industry and the temporary closure of retail shops have resulted in factory shutdowns in Bangladesh, Cambodia, and Viet Nam, negatively impacting women’s jobs. Women in the tourism and hospitality sectors have faced similar challenges.

As an example; the UN study of April 2021, shows that the COVID-19 pandemic has had far-reaching and diverse effects on women and girls in East and Southern Africa, and will set back global efforts to achieve most gender-related SDG targets, especially those relating to SDG 3 and SDG 5. These among many findings inform the need to urgently ensure gender responsive budgeting for an equitable and inclusive economic recovery.
