Time Poverty: Why it Matters and What To Do About it
Globally, women and girls do the vast majority of caregiving and domestic work in the home. These heavy and disproportional responsibilities result in time poverty. We must act now to tackle the time poverty burden and transform our societies.
Dalberg is increasingly striving to adopt a gender lens across all of our project work, across sectors. In celebration of this year’s International Women’s Day, we share three recent project spotlights from across our portfolio of work, where adopting a gender lens has allowed us to drive value for our clients, and deepen the impact of our engagements. The outputs of these projects include: a guide on gender-sensitive service provision to smallholder farmers, a platform to increase employment opportunities for women in the creative industries, and a set of investment criteria that G7 development finance institutions can use to mobilize gender lens investing commitments and define eligible investments.
