Accelerating Progress in Gender Equality
SHARE THIS PAGE
Providing equal access to economic opportunities for men and women is essential to ensure a sustainable and thriving economy. Tackling gender inequality is a complex, long-term challenge that requires broad social engagement, in addition to economic opportunities, access to land, financial instruments, and information and communication technology tools. The Capacity Building and Training Department will scale up support for gender equality by concentrating on economically helping women, pursuing gender equality in human development, enhancing gender equality in decision making among leaders, reducing women’s time poverty, and strengthening women’s resilience to external shocks.
