Webinar Presentation: Child Care Services and Women’s Work

Slide presentation of the webinar held on 20 May 2021

Re-organising and investing in public child care services that meet the needs of children and their caregivers is an ambitious undertaking amidst a global economic recession. Research from UN Women and the ILO shows how this public investment can be partially recovered through new decent work opportunities that lead to more tax revenue and social security contributions. The vast body of evidence from the early childhood development field on the life-long benefits of quality child care services for 0-3-year-olds is compelling. There are diverse actors engaged in research, policy development and advocacy for quality child care. This webinar was intended as a space for various actors to discuss common approaches for more public investment in quality child care services.
