Maldives: Gender Equality Diagnostic of Selected Sectors

Institutional Document | November 2014

For the past decade, the Maldives has experienced economic growth. However, challenges remain in gender equality and women’s empowerment, limited share in employment, and low participation in political development and decision making.

This publication intends to support the Government of the Maldives in tackling gender inequalities and gaps through a multisector approach across policies, programs, and projects. It provides insights into gender issues in energy; fisheries; micro, small, and medium enterprises; transport; tourism; and water and sanitation and suggestions for strengthening gender mainstreaming in project design, implementation, and monitoring.
