This country gender assessment was prepared as part of a regional ADB technical assistance project covering four countries in the Central Asian Republics - Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, the Kyrgyz Republic, and Tajikistan. In addition to supporting Government efforts to promote gender equality and mainstream gender into national poverty reduction strategies, the CGAs aim to ensure that the ADB interventions are responsive to country gender conditions and commitments.
