To mark the launch of our report Improving Funding Transparency for Women’s Economic Empowerment, this blog examines why the publication of results data is vital to understand impact and advance gender equality.
Following our recent research tracking funding for women’s empowerment collectives (WECs) in Kenya, Nigeria and Bangladesh, this blog focuses on women’s groups with WECs elements. Dorcas Mutheu discusses what our research tells us about how these groups are funded and how reporting can be improved for better tracking of funding and impact.
Identifying the specific groups of women that funding has supported greatly helps us to identify gaps in funding. In this blog, we examine what the data tells us about the groups of women targeted by international funders in Bangladesh, Kenya and Nigeria.
