Call for expression of interest: growth and economic opportunities for women

In partnership with the United Kingdom’s Department for International Development and The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, IDRC’s Growth and Economic Opportunities for Women (GrOW) program is launching a call for Expression of Interest for a Synthesis of Evidence and Lessons on women’s economic empowerment, gender equality, and economic growth.

Focusing on low-income countries in sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia, GrOW will produce high-quality evidence on three sets of inter-related themes:
  1. What are the nature and magnitude of barriers to women’s economic empowerment and to closing gender gaps in earnings and productivity? How can these barriers be overcome?
  2. How do specific patterns of economic growth and types of structural change affect women’s economic empowerment and gender equality?
  3. How do women's economic empowerment and gender equality affect economic growth?

Deadline: December 5, 2013 at 4:59 EDT (Ottawa time)
