ADB Gender Equality Results Case Study: Bhutan

April 8, 2011 at 12:13 pm 1 comment

A new study from the Asian Development Bank assesses the gender-equality impact of four ADB-sponsored projects in the Himalayan nation of Bhutan: the Micro, Small, and Medium-Sized Enterprise Sector Development Program, the Rural Electricians Training Program, the Basic Skills Development Project and Rural Skills Development Project, and the Improving the Well-Being of Road Workers Project.  The report notes how each program affected and was influenced by women, and the steps taken to ensure the programs served women’s  needs.  Strategies ranged from increasing women’s access to finance to ensuring equal pay for women electricians’ work. 

Bravo to the ADB for going to the effort to make sure their programs benefit all people, regardless of gender!
