enGender Impact : the World Bank's Gender Impact Evaluation Database

August 2013 - present

 

The enGender Impact series of briefs serves to: 1) compile impact evaluations led or supported by the World Bank Group; 2) organize impact evaluations around priority areas for policy action highlighted in the World Development Report 2012 on Gender Equality and Development; and 3) distill standard information on all IEs so that lessons can be easily accessed and applied. In doing so, the series aims to contribute to gender equality by supporting global knowledge sharing and uptake of key lessons and encouraging more and better impact evaluations in key gender topics. These topics include a) reducing health disparities, b) shrinking education and skills gaps, c) increasing economic opportunities boosting voice and agency, and d) addressing gender-based violence. This series captures World Bank gender-related IEs dating from January 2000.
