IDB COVID-19 Response Projects and Gender Integration   [open pdf - 1MB]

From the Introduction: "CGD's [Center for Global Development's] COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] Gender and Development Initiative seeks to gather evidence on the gendered impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic in order to ensure policy responses to the crisis reach and benefit women and girls. Research from around the world has shown that women have been hit hardest by the pandemic and economic crisis, suffering major setbacks in employment and entrepreneurship and shouldering more unpaid work than before. Our initiative focuses on low- and middle-income countries, where the impacts may be most damaging but where research is still lacking. The initiative focuses on three research questions: [1] What are the gendered impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic and economic crisis? [2] What are donors and policymakers doing in response to the crisis? [3] What else is needed?"
