Did Pandemic Spending Go Towards a Feminist People’s Recovery in Africa and Latin America?

April 5th, 2022

On Friday, April 8th at 12:00-13:30 UTC / 8:00-9:30 EDT the Financial Transparency Coalition (FTC) co-sponsored a panel discussion at the IMF’s 2022 Spring Meetings CSO Forum.

Only a small proportion of pandemic stimulus spending in the global South has been mobilized to help the people most impacted by the crisis. Recovery spending in both Africa and Latin America led to rising gender inequality. The role of the IMF is assessed concerning fiscal space and gender inequality.
