Gender Action

Gender Action is dedicated to promoting gender equality and women's rights in all International Financial Institution (IFI) investments such as those of the World Bank.

The organisation's main programmes comprise:

  • Tracking World Bank and other IFI gender policy implementation
  • Women, the environment and infrastructure.
