Summary Winter 2006
In most developing countries, efforts to reduce poverty and reach the Millennium Development Goals provide a timely opportunity to draw attention to the contribution of unpaid work to economic and social development. Summarized in this issue, an October 2005 conference organized by the Levy Institute in partnership with the United Nations Development Programme focused on women's unpaid work in the context of achieving the MDGs, and the need for viable pro-poor policy alternatives.
