Specifically, the webinar aims to:
- Raise awareness of how key provisions in the AfCFTA Agreement could be leveraged to advance new trade and economic opportunities for women in their various economic roles.
- Identify and build on women’s economic empowerment interventions highlighted in the course on “A Guide To Gender Mainstreaming in AfCFTA National Strategies” to promote financial and economic inclusion for African women.
- Facilitate an exchange on key findings emanating from the process of gender mainstreaming to support the design of gender-responsive AfCFTA policies, complementary measures and other interventions that promote women's full and equal participation in AfCFTA implementation and as part of the solution to post COVID-19 recovery.
