The collapse of domestic revenues we now see severely limits LDCs’ ability to put together sufficient health and stimulus packages.   The decline of remittances will leave too many families in destitution and increase poverty.

I felt very inspired hearing their powerful stories on challenging status quo, breaking barriers on  #genderequality , and exploring tensions around progress towards gender equality and sexual health and reproductive rights  #SRHR for LGBTQIA+ people and communities.

I ended the day by joining a discussion on the importance of ensuring girls’ opportunities to pursue education with  Global Partnership for Education . 130 million girls around the world are out of secondary school, gender-based discrimination is still one of the main barriers for education access.
