Financing for Gender Equality in the Context of the Sustainable Development Goals
PDF File Size: 510 KB | Download   
This paper identifies a series of macro-level tools to create a supportive environment and generate the resources to promote Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) related to gender equality. A key argument is that financing for gender equality can be self sustaining because of the feedback effects from gender equality to economy wide wellbeing. Among the tools related to targeted government spending are demand stimulating macroeconomic policies to promote full employment and public investment. Two types of public investment are explored. Physical infrastructure investment, such as spending on clean water, sanitation, and health clinics, can reduce women’s unpaid care burden. Social infrastructure investment, defined as investment in people’s capabilities, refers to the fundamental social, intellectual, and emotional skills, and health of individuals or level of human development—a country relies on for its economy function. Both types have a public goods quality in that they generate positive spillover
effects on economy-wide productivity.
