Four strategies for helping women in fragile settings succeed in the digital economy
The coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic is disproportionately impacting women’s livelihoods. Young women are more prone to unemployment and under-employment than men, and many work in service and informal sector jobs that have been most disrupted during the crisis.
As part of their COVID-19 response, governments are exploring digital solutions to promote economic recovery. However, gender gaps in internet use and mobile phone access mean that job opportunities in the digital economy remain out of reach for many women. This inequality is exacerbated in communities affected by fragility, conflict and violence (FCV), where women often face greater safety and security concerns, significant mobility constraints, and restrictive sociocultural norms. This is the case in Kaduna, a state in northern Nigeria affected by years of conflict and instability.
eC2: Digital Economy For South Asia (DE4SA)- Digital Economy Assessments
Deadline: 15-Oct-2019 at 11:59:59 PM (Eastern Time – Washington D.C.)
The World Bank Digital Development Global Practice (DD GP) is engaging with countries across Asia to identify new opportunities for growth and inclusion from the digital economy. These engagements have resulted in most cases from ongoing policy dialogue or investment lending programs and they reflect an interest from these countries to identify the public policies and investments that can promote their national digital economies. At the same time, there are opportunities to be realized through regional programs that could improve connectivity, access to markets, and grow the regional digital economy. In addition, there are also ongoing engagements with countries across Africa in other engagements.
