In order to support women and vulnerable groups to manage and benefit from market systems during periods of crises, donors and NGOs need to draw on multiple aid and development disciplines including partnership with the private sector. Leveraging the shifting gender norms during crisis, the goal must be to strengthen the resilience of women, of their markets and value chains, and change the wider enabling environment to support inclusive economic recovery and peace.
Join us for the launch of our report Resilient Markets: Strengthening women’s economic empowerment and market systems in fragile settings and a panel discussion on how different approaches by different actors working in fragile settings can effectively support women and market systems to survive through crises. The panel will include academic, donor, private sector and operational NGO perspectives, and attendees will be invited to share their own work and find areas for collaboration.
When: Thursday 8 December, 12-2pm
Where: CARE International UK, 89 Albert Embankment, SE1 7TP
(in ‘South America’ meeting room, 3rd Floor)
Lunch and refreshments provided.
