Description

Functioning market systems and a responsible and responsive private sector are critical to livelihoods, autonomy and well-being. However they are both heavily impacted by crisis, including war. 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 CARE for a discussion on how different approaches by different actors working in fragile settings can effectively support women and market systems to survive through crises.

Invited panel include academic, donor, private sector and operational NGO perspectives. Attendees will be invited to share their own work and find areas for collaboration.
