Georgia: Country Gender Assessment

Institutional Document | December 2018

This publication provides a gender analysis of socioeconomic areas and issues in Georgia and for the Asian Development Bank’s operations in Georgia.

Georgia has advanced its gender equality agenda but progress is still needed to achieve some key gender equality outcomes. Georgia continues to fare poorly on key global indicators of economic status and political voice. Violence against women also remains a pervasive issue in the country, affecting one in seven women. Some gender-responsive practices were identified, but significant gaps and missed opportunities for women’s empowerment and inclusion were also identified. Recommendations include the need for capacity-building on gender mainstreaming, increased human and financial resources, and an improved evidence base.
