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:
- 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?
- How do specific patterns of economic growth and types of structural change affect women’s economic empowerment and gender equality?
- How do women's economic empowerment and gender equality affect economic growth?
