Two new projects are joining an existing research initiative to advance gender equality in the world of work. Implemented in Ethiopia and Tanzania, the projects will study childcare models that work for resource-poor working mothers and the use of government procurement programs to boost women’s economic prospects.
This project takes a private-sector-led approach to addressing the dual challenge of making food security climate-smart and mainstreaming gender considerations while transitioning to a low-carbon economy at scale.
Efforts at closing gender gaps in financial inclusion focus on developing financial products and services specifically targeting women, but broader social and cultural constraints that prevent women from using these products and services are rarely taken into account.
In partnership with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, IDRC is pleased to launch a call for action research proposals on Growth and Economic Opportunities for Women (GrOW) – East Africa.
