UN Women releases new toolkit on care work

UN Women developed a new toolkit on paid and unpaid care work, building on the 2016 “Toolkit on Recognizing, Reducing and Redistributing Unpaid Work and Care”.

The new kit focuses on 'reward' and 'representation' in the context of paid and unpaid care work and is targeted at those working on care work in the context of gender equality.

Germany, as part of its G7 Presidency, supported the development of the toolkit. Care work has been a priority of the Geman G7 Presidency, giving special attention to the “Global Alliance for Care” and the World Bank’s Child Care Incentive Fund.
