Gender and women

The fifth Sustainable Development Goal (SDG 5) envisions narrowing the gap between men and women in access to opportunities by 2030. However, there continues to exist a gender-based wedge in access to education, high-productivity employment, land, among other opportunities and resources. Our analysis in this theme attempts to create knowledge on the extent, drivers and potential solutions to gender inequality in various sectors. We also evaluate interventions meant to narrow the gender gap in various sectors and recommend changes to ongoing programs to better align them with the intended goals of gender equality and women’s empowerment. With our in-house expertise, we provide technical strengthening to the local and regional organizations in areas related to gender analysis, empowerment and gender mainstreaming.
