Building back better: Using a disruptive crisis to achieve sustainable and gender inclusive improvements in food security, labor markets and social protection

Ecuador, Peru

Project overview / objectives

What cost-effective policy options and, crucially, what unforeseen opportunities exist for Latin America and the Global South to reduce the socio-economic impacts of the pandemic, promote a more equitable recovery and lay the foundations for a new, more inclusive architecture of social protection? The project will focus specifically on the fields of food systems, labor markets and social protection. In addition, and considering that the crisis is expected to disproportionally affected women, research will explicitly seek to identify policy alternatives that promote gender equitable results.
