Gender Equality, Infrastructure and PPPs

A primer

From both the public and private sides of the World Bank Group, we are pleased to offer this primer as an important first step toward gender equality. The primer consolidates and draws from a wide spectrum of examples that cut across sectors to demonstrate how infrastructure, its development, and the policies and regulations governing its construction and operation, can play a role in closing gaps between women and men. It pinpoints approaches for ensuring that projects not only do no harm, but also serve as vehicles for empowerment, providing practical guidance that can be systematically integrated into PPP projects and frameworks.
