Over the next three years, 12 new research projects supported by IDRC will address the gender barriers that hinder women’s access to economic opportunities, while supporting sustainable climate-resilient recovery.
Key findings of an IDRC-funded project in the West Bank — Reproductive health needs of Palestinian refugee camp adolescent girls: From evidence to policy — include the importance of engaging the community in COVID-19 prevention efforts and providing assistance to those in need.

This project is part of an initiative that will provide evidence and strengthen capacity for bridging the knowledge gap in responding to the growing COVID-19 health crisis both in the short-term and longer-term.
