On 2 August, we launched our research on donor and government financing to address gender gaps in women’s economic empowerment, including unpaid care work and access to financial services, at a webinar hosted by the Center for Global Development. A panel of donor and civil society representatives reflected on these findings and discussed what future investments should look like.
On 19 July, in an exclusive webinar to the Global Alliance for Care and friends, Publish What You Fund presented its findings from research developed in partnership with the International Center for Research on Women (ICRW) that tracks international funding aimed at reducing women and girls’ unpaid care work.
Publish What You Fund is looking for individual consultants with research and advocacy experience based in Uganda, Ethiopia and Pakistan to support research and advocacy work for our Women’s Economic Empowerment programme.
What tools can be used to track funding for gender equality and women’s empowerment? This blog provides examples of country, institution, funding-specific, and cross-institution tools for tracking gender-related finance. Produced jointly by researchers at the Center for Global Development, Donor Tracker, and Publish What You Fund, this blog provides illustrative examples to give researchers, practitioners, and advocates an idea of the types of tools they can harness to monitor donors’ efforts toward achieving gender equality.
The Gender Financing Project: Video Tutorial Series is for anyone who would like to learn how to track aid and development funding for gender equality. The main focus of the four videos is to help you track international donors’ funding to improve gender equality, using some of the most trusted and well-used data sources.
There is an increased need for clear and consistent data on the extent to which bilateral and multilateral donors are prioritizing gender equality in their financing, and to what end. Without accurate data on the funding of and results from gender equality projects, we cannot hold donor institutions accountable for their gender equality commitments, nor ensure that funds spent are meeting populations’ needs. Preliminary findings from the Gender Financing Project shed light on how donors are spending on global gender equality—and what we still don’t know based on available data.
