CARE International response to the UN High Level Panel for WEE’s new report

The United Nations Secretary-General established the High-Level Panel (HLP) on Women’s Economic Empowerment to bring together leaders from different constituencies — government, civil society, business and international organizations — to launch a shared global agenda that accelerates women’s economic participation and empowerment in support of implementing the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and its promise that no one will be left behind.

CARE International has sought to work closely with the HLP to promote our views on what works most effectively for women’s economic empowerment. The HLP has now published its second report providing an overview of the key factors that could influence rapid progress towards empowerment, and a set of recommendations to which the HLP is seeking commitments from all stakeholders, including civil society organisations such as CARE International.
