How to promote gender equality with shock-responsive social protection programmes?
We caught up with Rebecca Holmes, Senior Research Fellow for Social Protection, Gender and Livelihoods at Overseas Development Institute (ODI), to find out more:
What, in your opinion, is the biggest challenge in designing and implementing shock-responsive social protection systems to support gender equality and foster women’s and girls’ empowerment?
a) There is a lack of an evidence base and limitations to the available data;
b) It is too difficult to include gender into programming in an emergency context with other competing priorities;
c) There is limited political support or acceptability for promoting gender equality and women’s empowerment.
Let us know what you think – and why!
