The webinar “Taxation for Redistributive justice: solutions for women, the people, and the planet” will be an open virtual session and will provide an opportunity for speakers and discussants to highlight taxation solutions for women, the people and planet to ensure redistributive justice.

The session will focus on macroeconomics and tax policy to identify alternative policies that could lead to more sustained public investment in women, people and the planet during and post the corona crisis period.
