Financing Gender Equality Is Financing Development

Financing Gender Equality Is Financing Development

UNIFEM Working Paper

Today, there is growing recognition of the need to foster high-quality economic growth that is equitable and sustainable. Many countries are promoting more inclusive financial sectors, and per capita social expenditures are increasing. International agreements, including theMillennium Declaration and the Monterrey Consensus, have endorsed financing policies that move beyond narrow definitions of income growth to embrace the more comprehensive goal of human development, that is, expanding people's choices to improve their lives.

Fragile States, Gender Equality and Aid Effectiveness

A Review of Donor Perspectives

Given that gender would seem to be an important feature of state fragility/capacity, and given OECD governments’ commitments to gender equality - one would think that gender would be a strong thread running through donor thinking in this domain.iii To what extent is this so? What opportunities exist to enhance the systematic integration of GE in donors’ thinking on state fragility? These are the main questions addressed in this paper.
