On June 30 and July 1, at the General Audit Office of the Nation of Argentine, the II International Seminar on Poverty and Gender, Covid-19 impact, will be held in the framework of the coordinated audit on public policies for the fulfillment of SDG 1 to mitigate the Covid-19 impact and reduce gender gaps. This event, organized by the Organization of Supreme Audit Institutions of Mercosur and Associate Countries (EFSUR), aims to be a space for analysis and debate in order to know the degree of application and implementation of government decisions aimed at ending poverty, in the context of the economic, social and health crisis of COVID 19.
The event schedule will have 8 panels (four per day) starting with the panel “Coordinated Audit: policies implemented to comply with SDG 1, mitigate the impact of COVID-19 and reduce gender gaps.” The main objective of this audit will be to examine the effectiveness in the implementation of the main programs identified by governments for the fulfillment of targets 1.2 and 1.3, with emphasis on the actions developed to mitigate the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, with a gender perspective on experiences of Latin American SAIs.
On the other hand, issues of relevance in the topic will be addressed such as gender violence in the context of COVID-19, feminization of poverty, the gender perspective in legislative work, and the effects of the pandemic on the Argentine labor market. Finally, on Friday, the event will be closed by the authorities of the SAIs present, in the panel “Auditing SDG 1 from a gender perspective in Latin American countries,”
