Azerbaijan: Country Gender Assessment

Institutional Document | December 2019

This publication presents the results of an assessment of how Azerbaijan has steadily advanced gender equality outcomes while pursuing its goal to become a highly developed country.

Gender equality goals are cited in the national development policies and economic strategies of Azerbaijan. The country gender assessment included interviews with women in the communities who shared their stories and insights on how projects of the Asian Development Bank and other social interventions have improved their lives. The results of the assessment call for a more strategic focus to integrate Azerbaijan’s gender concerns into programs and operations to ensure continued progress toward gender equality and women’s empowerment.
