dc.description.abstract This paper contextualizes and reviews recent research on unpaid care work in the Global South, with a particular focus on projects funded through the multi-donor Growth and Economic Opportunities for Women (GrOW) program and IDRC. It offers a typology of paid and unpaid, market and non-market work activities and how they are counted—or overlooked—in current systems of National Accounts, with implications of these gaps. In the past five years, a large portfolio of projects brings unpaid care provision to the center of research on gender and development, and raises important questions about the definition of economic development itself. en
