We are LIVE tweeting the discussion – Reset and Restart: She Leads a Green World with Minouche Shafik, Geraldine Ang, @sarpanchbhakti, @odelphine, @katehamptongray. Participate with #Raisina2021 #RaisinaDialogue
.@katehamptongray: #GreenRecovery & #GenderEquality has major intersections. Focusing on gender and climate will deliver a labour-intensive recovery with massive multiplier effects and the chance to achieve rapid growth while reducing inter-generational poverty. #SheLeads
.@katehamptongray: Environmental damage & women’s unpaid work are often ignored by orthodox economics and are only seen as externalities. Consequently, these issues are often held in silos. We aim to bring them to the centre of the conversation. #Raisina2021
Geraldine Ang: The role of sustainable finance & Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) investing has been substantial in climate action. #ESG investing generated $17trillion last year to support environmental & governmental objectives with #WomenLeading this transition.
Geraldine Ang: Women are the driving force in green recovery. Studies suggest women are twice more likely, as savers, to prioritise ESG impact in their investment decisions as compared to male counterparts.
.@katehamptongray: If countries were to participate in a green, resilient revivals of their economies and also provide social protection to their citizens, there is a need for a complete #reset in terms of geo-politics of recovery.
Minouche Shafik: Our current #SocialContract is failing. We need to come up with a social contract that allows for parental leave, high quality publicly provided childcare, and recognition of unpaid work.
Minouche Shafik: The fact that the stock of capital of #NaturalResources for our next generation is massively depleted reveals the need for a social contract that properly accounts for environmental capital in our economies and society.
.@sarpanchbhakti: Only when you empower women to voice their opinions will they have a greater role in decision making in a democracy.
.@sarpanchbhakti: #TrustEstablishments need to be constructed in the grassroots. These allow women to be open about their needs and helps local bodies to work efficiently and make the necessary impact.
.@odelphine: There is a necessity of bridging gaps between various actors and stakeholders in upholding gender equality and green recovery in the world. Big companies and small civil society organisations, all need to come together.
.@odelphine: When we talk about gender in climate, we tend to view women as only victims of climate change. While true, it is necessary that we increasingly start viewing women also as the drivers of the fight against climate change.
.@odelphine: International organisations & governments while paying attention to green recovery, tend to side-line the already small percentage of women in these industries. If we want to reset the world system, we need to train women to be in the driving seat for the restart.
.@sarpanchbhakti: As a primarily agrarian economy, India needs to move towards feminisation of agriculture with increased number of women at production and distribution levels and advancements in capacity building programmes in rural areas.
Minouche Shafik: We are going to see massive transformations moving forward and the opportunity for this transformation to be green and progressive presents itself, given we use appropriate incentives.
Geraldine Ang: To ensure grassroot progress in gender progress and green recovery, it is important that the financial sector is no longer disconnected from the real economy.
We come to a close of our discussion – Reset and Restart: She Leads a Green World with Minouche Shafik, Geraldine Ang, @sarpanchbhakti, @odelphine, @katehamptongray. Thank you for joining us! #Raisina2021 #RaisinaDialogue

#RaisinaEdit | If “Data is the New Oil” then our individual data has intrinsic value and, thus, the monetisation of the collective data of millions of our citizens is the proverbial gold mine, says Abdul Hakeem Ajijola: or-f.org/85352
Economic interdependence, imperatives of political geography, and Beijing’s successful elite capture in many societies have made it difficult for many in Asia to contest the unfolding Chinese dominance over the region, points out @MohanCRaja #RaisinaEdit: or-f.org/85281

.@priyankac19: There is a dichotomy that exists in India. We are on the right track in terms of our climate goals. But we still have 1.7 million deaths attributed to air pollution. 17 of our 20 metro cities are among the worst polluted in the world. #Raisina2021
.@lordstern1: The loss of life every year from air pollution in India is at least five times the total loss from COVID. This is immense. And the immensity of it is not really sufficiently understood.
