  • Join us to launch the World Bank’s new report, Better Jobs and Brighter Futures: Investing in Childcare to Build Human Capital. The report highlights the transformative potential of investments in childcare to increase women’s employment and productivity, create new jobs, improve child outcomes, drive economic growth and support a more resilient and inclusive recovery from the pandemic.

    The event will include an opening by Mamta Murthi, Human Development VP, and a short presentation on the report followed by a panel discussion with World Bank Directors from Education, Social Protection and Gender, policymakers, childcare providers and other experts on the challenges with childcare worldwide and how countries can support families to access quality, affordable childcare.

    Join the event to get answers to these 3 questions:

    • Why is childcare key for building human capital?
    • What is the status of childcare provision worldwide?
    • What do governments need to do to ensure families have access to quality, affordable childcare that meets their needs, especially the most vulnerable families.

Do the figure of 349 million children not having access to childcare covers ages 0-5 or 0-3 (pre-school). 
from Katy Anis to everyone:    9:53 AM
Fantastic presentation!  Implementing  these efforts  will have profound effect!  However, I liked how you raised some of the fundamental conceptual questions. For several millennia it has been families that do child care, who shape who children become, how culture is transmitted, how values that are imparted, provide early exposure to families’ livelihoods that in previous centuries provided a kind of apprenticing. As the world’s women have gone into the workforce, no one has gone home….  How can grandparents and older family members time, caring, and contributions be built upon? How can we train or upgrade skills of family members? How can we change how economies are organized so that not all members of the family need to work, or… better yet so that contribution to child care is quantified as an economic contribution to the home and an economic contribution to the GDP.   These are not short term questions with quick solutions but more longer long term systemic questions to raise…..

great example from Kidogo
from Esther Goh to everyone:    10:02 AM
I agree. This is a great conversation on the quality - financing dichotomy. Kudos to Amanda and Frances on this publication! I hope we can keep this conversation in the limelight. 
from Helen Elsey to everyone:    10:03 AM
Fantastic points Sabrina - government funding is vital to ensure sustainability and quality
from Meera Shekar to everyone:    10:03 AM
Thanks again -- excellent session. I also really want to emphasise the issue of maternity leave as part of the child-care opportunities. We have estimated costs and benefits of maternity leave --albeit only in the formal sector for now. It is important for all of us to push this agenda through the informal sector as well in order to boost not just women's workforce partiicpation, but also their own health and welfare, as well as of course the first 1000 days of a child's life that is so critical for nutrition, early brain development and future productivity and human capital.
from Tindara Addabbo to all attendees:    10:04 AM
Yes I agree it is a pity that I have to leave now. In Italy there was an interesting programme I am aware of involving and training mothers in poorest areas of Naples called Nidi di Mamme having an important direct effect on empowering mothers and increasing the opportunity for families to access services of good quality. Thanks a lot for the webinar really stimulating.
from Dominique LALLEMENT to all attendees:    10:05 AM
Just a reminder of history: it took 17 years for the World Bank to finally agree to open the Child Care Center! So encouraging to see that the World Bank is moving big times on this critical issue.
from Rob Hughes to everyone:    10:08 AM
Thanks Amanda, Fran and team for a wonderful report; really vital contribution to this long neglected agenda. It's really exciting to see so much energy and ambition around addressing the global childcare crisis. I hope we can (perhaps working with/through ECDAN and/or the WBG ELP) build an active community of practice/knowledge sharing on this. 
rom Dominique LALLEMENT to all attendees:    10:09 AM
Has the World Bank considered putting mandatory childcare provision in procurement documents for infrastructure construction (of whatever type: energy, roads, water supply, telecoms etc.). Is the Bank working on this with the ILO ?
