Toward a Resilient Care Ecosystem in Asia and the Pacific: Reflections on the Bali Care Economy Dialogue

Event: Wednesday, February 22, 2023, Canberra

The Asia Foundation, UN Women, and the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade are pleased to invite you to a virtual reflection session that will provide an overview of a recent regional convening—the Bali Care Economy Dialogue—that took place in November 2022 to leverage global momentum around transforming the care economy while elevating perspectives on care from Asia and the Pacific. Bali Care Economy Dialogue partners included the Center for Global Development, WeProsper Global Coalition, UN Women, Oxfam, International Development Research Centre, and the Global Alliance for Care with support from the United States Department of State’s Secretary’s Office of Global Women’s Issues.

Participants will hear about outcomes and actionable policies that emerged from the Bali Care Economy Dialogue, as well as key findings from a new white paper on building a resilient care ecosystem in Asia and the Pacific.
