UN Women and UNDP: Government Responses to COVID-19: Lessons on Gender Equality for a World in Turmoil

The overlapping impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, accelerating climate disasters and geopolitical conflict are a threat to gender equality and women’s rights across the globe. A new report by UN Women and UNDP shows what governments can do now to prevent further rollbacks and recover lost ground, while enhancing resilience and preparedness for future shocks. Government Responses to COVID-19: Lessons on Gender Equality for a World in Turmoil draws on a unique global dataset of nearly 5,000 measures adopted by 226 countries and territories in response to COVID-19. It analyzes the extent to which these measures have responded to the specific challenges that women have faced, highlights gaps as well as good practices, and looks at the factors that have enabled a stronger gender response across countries.
