Country Gender Assessment: Kazakhstan

Institutional Document | December 2013

This country gender assessment for Kazakhstan builds on the previously published country gender assessment, as well as on experience gained by Asian Development Bank (ADB) in support of gender equality and women's empowerment in Kazakhstan.

Since ADB published its last country gender assessment in 2006, the Government of Kazakhstan has enacted important national policies promoting gender equality, followed by action plans and national programs dedicated to specific issues affecting women.
