Like our partners, we share a joint ambition to
unlock and accelerate impact, scale and
sustainability of development.
Working closely with partners, we invest with a rare mix of resources, deep expertise and on-ground experience, shaping social equity, working across SDG goals.

Gender has been the cross-cutting theme of many of our research, review and evaluation studies in the areas of poverty, financial inclusion, social protection, livelihoods and governance.

We have adopted various gender frameworks, such as the World Bank’s agency opportunity framework and the women’s empowerment in agriculture index of IFPRI.

We contributed to developing an innovative reporting module on a mobile application that helps track the escalating experience of gender-based violence (GBV), focusing on the prevention and mitigation of violence.

We also quality assured the DOT tool developed for use in factories, where the workforce is often not literate. The DOT tool utilises a survey, using dots to capture responses about the work environment, where the colours of the dots indicate the level of action required to prevent GBV.
