Building Forward: Creating a More Equitable, Gender-Just, Inclusive, and Sustainable World Executive Summary

October 1, 2020

The effects of the COVID-19 pandemic have undoubtedly been, and continue to be, terrible for individuals, communities, and countries. Yet the crisis provides the world with a unique opportunity, an opportunity to build forward rather than back. The purpose of this report is to highlight how best this can be done, via a holistic approach to economic, environmental and humanitarian policies, and by putting women and girls at the center of recovery and reform. Through a comprehensive process of listening and learning, including reviewing hundreds of resources, CARE has identified women’s economic justice and rights, green and gender-just recovery, and humanitarian response reforms as being key to building forward from COVID-19. Funding the prevention and treatment of the pandemic in a gender-equitable manner will be a critical tool in taking this approach forward.
