Gender Strategy 2016-2023 (World Bank Group)

This is the cover for the World Bank Group's Gender Strategy 2016-2013
April 2017
GFDRR’s Gender Action Plan also leverages the momentum of the 2015-23 World Bank Group Gender Strategy and its extensive evidence base, by operationalizing it for GFDRR’s activities and the WBG’s DRM sector. The new WBG Strategy builds on the evidence base and conceptual framework of the World Development Report 2012: Gender Equality and Development and was consulted with over 1,000 stakeholders in 22 countries. It aims to move the Bank’s development work beyond gender mainstreaming to outcomes and results. It also identifies climate change and disaster risk management as emerging areas that require additional attention and calls for bringing a gender lens to resilience and developing gender-smart solutions to climate change.
