Engendering development through gender equality in rights, resources, and voice : summary (English)

Disparities between men and women in basic rights, access to resources, and power to determine their own lives continue to exist in virtually all countries in the world. "Engendering Development" focuses on how understanding and accounting for the links between gender, policy, and development outcomes can improve policy formulation and development effectiveness. The objectives of this report are to strengthen the analytical and empirical underpinnings of these links. This report reconfirms the importance of gender equality in the fight against poverty, and stresses the urgency of promoting gender-related action.
