    Closing the Gender Gap in Care Services in Mexico

    Closing the Gender Gap in Care Services in Mexico

    Is care a gendered issue? Why is the business of care a shared responsibility and how can a comprehensive care system help transform our society?

    In Mexico, reformers are working to design a national policy on public care services. Through a pilot program, the policy will be monitored by citizens — enabling them to shape these services and reduce the gender inequality gap in Mexico and position the right to care in the public agenda.

    Guest: Marta Ferreyra, Director General of the National Policy of Equality and Rights of Women at the Institute for Women in Mexico, INMUJERES

    Co-Host: Carolina Cornejo, National Director of Open Government in the Chief of Cabinet of Ministers Office of Argentina

    When a Government’s “Eyes and Ears” Improve Public Services

    When a Government’s “Eyes and Ears” Improve Public Services

    How do we ensure that public funds are spent efficiently and not mismanaged? In the State of Kaduna, Nigeria, the Department of Monitoring and Evaluation in the Planning and Budget Commission and Follow Taxes are working on a citizen-led budget monitoring initiative designed to track state-funded projects. The Kaduna Citizen Feedback App, housed under the Eyes and Ears project, has empowered citizens to become the eyes and ears of the government to oversee public spending.

    In this episode, we learn about how we can inspire local governments to be more innovative in delivering public services and why incentivizing citizens to collaborate is critical.

    Guest: Saied Tafida, Co-Founder of Follow Taxes
    Co-host: Aidan Eyakuze, Executive Director of Twaweza
