UN HLPF side event: Building Back Better through Gender-Responsive Public Procurement
The 2022 United Nations High-Level Political Forum focuses on “building back better from the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) while advancing the full implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development".

Tapping into new avenues for inclusive and rapid growth (such as public procurement) captures the spirit of building back better from the coronavirus pandemic, with an in-depth focus on SDG 5 on gender equality.

This official side event, co-hosted by the Government of the Republic of South Africa, Women 20 (W20), the Women Entrepreneurs Act Initiative (WE Act), and the International Trade Centre (ITC), supports increased women’s participation in public procurement globally and increased number of tenders won by women-owned and women-led businesses through awareness-raising and advocacy.

Panellists will share the experiences of their countries in unlocking women’s potential through public procurement opportunities in an effort to facilitate knowledge sharing and inspire countries interested in creating new programmes or upgrading existing ones.
