The GMS Gender Strategy is designed to support the GMS-2030 ambition of equitable sharing of benefits as the region begins to rebuild after the COVID-19 pandemic, by identifying opportunities to advance gender equality in GMS program activities.
GMS Gender Strategy
A regional approach to advance gender equality in the GMS would support the efforts of individual countries on gender equality. Gender equality is intrinsically linked to development, prosperity, and sustainability. Without the equal participation of men and women there can be no sustainability or inclusive growth.
