Financing the care economy – Why is it important for the Rights-Based Economy?

Time: 1 to 2pm CET/ 8 to 9 am NY time

Languages: English/Spanish

Organisers: Financial Transparency Coalition (FTC), Asian People’s Movement for Debt and Development (APMDD), Centre for Budget and Governance Accountability(CBGA), Christian Aid, Latindadd, and  Tax Justice Network Africa (TJNA)

About: The urgency of increasing finance in care is more indispensable than ever. The post-pandemic fragile economic situations and the spiralling cost of living crisis are making the lives of poor, marginalized, and women more vulnerable. Several studies by the feminist’s economists, several UN bodies have highlighted the importance of investing in the care economy and its both explicit and implicit contributions toward reducing gender inequality and overall poverty alleviation, but they also show that the financing for the care economy is lacking. However, new research from the Financial Transparency Coalition and its members presents government expenditures on the care economy in Global South countries and shows how increasing finances on care economy can be an alternative to a corporate-driven growth model. From a rights-based economy perspective, the event will argue that the realisation of human rights through revenue mobilization, gender equality through tackling unpaid care and domestic work, and greater participation of women in all facets of society are visions that are gaining ground.
