The World Development Report is the World Bank’s annual flagship publication on development issues. The World Bank produces a report on a different topic each year, following extensive research and consultations with the public, governments, academics, and development organizations globally. CIDA’s contribution supports case studies, consultations, and analytical work carried out by the World Bank. The 2012 World Development Report, entitled Gender Equality and Development, focused on how to improve the lives of girls and women around the world. It called on countries to pay greater attention to addressing gender inequality in four key areas: reducing female mortality and closing education gaps; improving access to economic opportunities; increasing women’s voice in the household and in society; and limiting the perpetuation of gender inequality across generations.

Results & Indicators

Expected Results

Results achieved as of the end of the project (October 2012) include: CIDA’s contribution facilitated the development of a report that provided stakeholders (e.g. civil society, private sector, donors), government leaders, and policy makers in developed and developing countries with an assessment of the extent of gender inequalities worldwide, the identification of gender gaps in health, education and labour market participation, and policy recommendations to close those gaps and achieve gender equality.
