ILO Launches Two New Tools to Investigate Care Policies World Wide!
Let us see what are the two new tools – the Global Care Policy Portal and the Care Policy Investment Simulator of ILO!
(1) The ILO Global Care Policy portal is a knowledge hub to disseminate data and resources on care leave policies and services to advance the ILO transformative agenda for gender equality and non-discrimination. The portal presents over 60 legal and statistical indicators on maternity protection, paternity leave, parental leave, and other care leave and non-discrimination policies, as well as childcare and long-term care services in more than 180 countries. It uses international labour standards as benchmarks and builds on ILO policy research since 1994.
(2) The portal also offers a Care Policy Investment Simulator, a user-friendly online tool aimed to support Member States and other partners to make simulations on how to close care policy gaps and reap the multiple benefits of investing in the care economy.
What does it do?
“It allows users to analyze and compare country-level care leave policies and services for more than 180 countries,”
The Portal contains information on eleven topics including maternity, paternity and parental leave, health protection for pregnant and nursing women, breastfeeding at work, childcare, and long-term care services.
The Care Policy Investment Simulator, the largest online care policy modeling tool will be available to the general public. Containing data from more than 80 countries and built on over 180 statistical indicators, the Simulator automatically calculates both the investment requirements for a package of care leave policies and services and the related benefits in terms of job generation, reduction in gender employment, and wage gaps, and return on investment.
The Simulator shows that technologies can be a powerful engine to support gender-transformative policy-making and improve the lives of care providers, care workers, and of those cared for.
It provides ready answers to many policy questions –
- In which state are maternity protection policies around the world?
- How many days are entitled to dads when their child is born?
The International Labour Organization (ILO) has gathered data to help answer all these questions.
Described by ILO as an open-access portal that is “a knowledge hub on legal and statistical indicators on national care leave policies and services.”
The Investment Simulator “calculates the investment requirements in 4 care policy areas and the related employment and gender equality benefits for 182 countries.”
Both instruments, useful to better grab the worldwide situation, are easily accessible sources of information, thanks to powerful visual communication qualities.
The Global Care Portal, for example, offers a clear and immediate rendering of the conditions registered worldwide displayed per topic, data, and area. On the one hand, it deepens the available knowledge on maternity, paternity, and parental leave; on the other, it sheds light on care leave schemes and non-discrimination policies, such as childcare and long-term care services.
These two tools put together visualized information about the most crucial issues still keeping women out of the labour market, they help better understand where countries stand regarding gender equality.
It uses international labour standards – the Maternity Protection Convention 2000 (No. 183), the Workers with Family Responsibilities Convention 1981 (No. 156) and accompany recommendations No. 165 and 191 as benchmarks.
According to the ILO’s care at work report, two billion potential parents still live in countries without adequate maternity protection, paternity and parental leave, and quality childcare services with decent care jobs. Closing these childcare policy gaps could create millions of jobs by 2035 and promote women’s employment and earnings.
It is gratifying to learn from ILO’s portal of many policy benefits from most countries, for example:
- that Georgia, where in 2021 there is no statutory paternity or parental leave, is the country among the 182 considered with the longest statutory maternity leave (104 weeks).
- Followed by Bulgaria (58), Australia, the UK, and Northern Ireland, Bosnia Herzegovina, and Albania (52).
- to realize that out of 178 countries, just 21 grant a universal childcare system for kids under two years of age.
- And again that 63 countries provide a universal pre-primary education (from 3 years old) as a statutory right.
- Or that only 2 in 10 adults globally live in countries that offer a lawful right to long-term care leave (55 out 179 for which data are collected).
The ILO Care Policy Simulator, instead, “helps to build tailor-made care policy investment packages of 4 care policies”. After choosing the area(s) of interest, from childcare paid leaves to breastfeeding breaks, the tool creates downloadable results obtained by comparing 180 statistical indicators. From public investment requirements to the reduction in gender earning gaps, it is possible to compare multiple scenarios for one country or a combination of different ones.
Conclusion: ILO – Promoting Rights at Work and Decent Employment Opportunities:
The International Labour Organization (ILO) is devoted to advancing opportunities for women and men to obtain decent and productive work in conditions of freedom, equity, security, and human dignity. Its main aims are to promote rights at work, encourage decent employment opportunities, enhance social protection and strengthen dialogue in handling work-related issues.
In promoting social justice and internationally recognized human and labour rights, the organization continues to pursue its founding mission that labour peace is essential to prosperity. Today, the ILO helps advance the creation of decent jobs and the kinds of economic and working conditions that give working people and business people a stake in lasting peace, prosperity, and progress.
