Regional : Technical Assistance for Gender Mainstreaming and Gender Initiatives in Nonsovereign Operations

Nonsovereign Project | 54391-001

PSOD has access to a number of financial sources which seek to support gender initiatives. These financial sources have been secured through a range of financing vehicles which need to be programmed in order to be utilized. PSOD's Gender Team seeks to pool these funds under the umbrella of a transactional technical assistance project (TA) to ensure coordination and management of these funds. Secured sources of funding initially include the Women Entrepreneurs Finance Initiative (We-Fi), the Australian Climate Finance Partnership (ACFP) and the ADB Ventures Financing Partnership Facility.
