It will also explore opportunities to include actions relevant to areas of the SDG 5 transformative agenda. To help specific projects in these sectors achieve EGM categorization, it will support the development of gender-related transaction technical assistance subprojects to supplement the gender design features identified in projects in these sectors. It will continue to provide technical guidance to EAs and/or IAs in the implementation of GAPs, collection, and review of semi-annual GAP updates, and reporting on gender equality results at project completion.

Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy

The negative economic and social impacts of the Russian invasion of Ukraine and coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic and efforts of governments in Central and West Asia to recover require increased support to gender mainstreaming, especially in the challenging sectors of energy, finance, public sector management, and transport to ensure women's inclusion in the recovery and rebuilding efforts and to strengthen women's resilience against current and future external shocks.
