Gender equality and development

Addressing gender equality and women’s empowerment through development co-operation


Strengthening women’s rights changes things for the better – for both women and men. Gender equality and empowered women are not only development goals but are also powerful catalysts for multiplying development efforts. Donors have revitalised their approaches so that gender equality and women’s empowerment are now often front and centre in development programmes. The practice notes in this section address institutional and strategic issues, and examine how donors can work to advance gender equality through country programmes, monitoring and evaluation, and capacity development.
