A Roadmap for Promoting Women’s Economic Empowerment
This research project is a first step in addressing a crucial knowledge gap about which interventions work. It sought to answer this question and produce an evidence-based Roadmap for Action that defines program and policy options that are feasible for different women — for whom— and in different, typical country scenarios that are likely to influence the success of interventions—where. By examining ‘for whom’ and ‘where,' the Roadmap takes into account how economic and social contexts potentially affect the success of interventions. The Roadmap for Action was crafted primarily to guide actions and investments by the private sector and potential public-private sector partnerships.
