Grounded in the vision of equality enshrined in the Charter of the United Nations, the United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women (UN Women) works for the elimination of discrimination against women and girls; the empowerment of women and the achievement of equality between women and men as partners and beneficiaries of development, human rights, humanitarian action and peace and security. Through its programmes and projects, UN Women is providing technical assistance to national partners (governmental and non-governmental) in the implementation of existing international and national commitments to women’s rights and gender equality, facilitates networking and exchange of good practices and advocates for women’s rights and gender equality in all areas of life.
Women economic empowerment is key for achieving gender equality, poverty eradication, inclusive economic growth and sustainable development. Despite some progress in increasing the presence of women in the public life, their participation in the labor market is still low and globally the gender participation gap is 31 %. One of the important causes for low participation of women in the labor market is their unequal share in the unpaid care work and the failure by member states to recognize, reduce and redistribute the domestic and care work. Globally, women continue to do 2.6 times the unpaid care and domestic work men do.
Based on the recent assessment of causes for low participation in the labor market in the country, gender-based discrimination and unpaid care work appeared as one of the main barriers to increasing women employability and empowerment. Addressing existing care deficits and inequalities will be critical in responding to the COVID-10 pandemic and economic recovery efforts. Recognizing, reducing and redistributing the drudgery of unpaid care and domestic work is central to the progress in gender quality, poverty eradication and economic growth. Gender equality is important priority for the Government of Cote D’Ivoire/Senegal/Nigeria and so is the elimination of the barriers that hamper its achievement. Central to devising national policies that would enable women’s empowerment and their equal engagement in the national economy is the recognition, reduction and redistribution of unpaid care work. As a first step in this direction is the assessment of the costs for the institutionalization of the family care and the fiscal and employment effects on gender equality.
Given the global recognition of the importance of investing in social care infrastructure, UN Women is engaging a team of experts (one international and one national) to assess the costs of expanding early childhood education and care (ECEC) and its potential impact on women labor participation rate. The national expert is required to support the international expert in assessing what levels of investments would be needed to expand the availability of ECEC, as well as the employment and fiscal revenue effects that these investments would produce. The team of experts will work under the supervision of UN Women office in xxx and in close consultation with the economics specialist on macroeconomics in the economic empowerment section at UN Women Headquarters.
