Areas of Work

The new  World Bank's Gender Strategy 2024-2030 focuses on three strategic objectives: end gender-based violence and elevate human capital, expand and enable economic opportunities, and engage women as leaders. 

Within these areas, the LACGIL carries out both ‘inferential studies’ to identify gender gaps and their drivers and ‘impact evaluations’ to test solutions to these gaps.

Examples of our work in the three strategic objectives can be found below.
