International Development Research Centre

For Research On Barriers To Women’s Economic Empowerment And Economic Growth In Low-income Countries

This grant would supplement the Growth and Economic Opportunities for Women (GrOW) research initiative, a five-year partnership with the U.K.’s Department for International Development and Canada’s International Development Research Centre. The initiative aims to support research to guide policies and programs that improve women’s economic empowerment in low-income countries. The supplemental funding will allow GrOW to include four additional research projects on how patterns of economic growth impact gender equality, and a systematic review of how women’s economic empowerment impacts growth.

Grants to this Grantee
for support of a network of researchers providing rapid response policy analysis  
The International Development Research Centre (IDRC) will support 11 low- and middle-income country research centers as they test evidence tools that have shown promise in health and may be applicable in other sectors. The centers will respond to inquiries from policymakers within 30 days, helping clarify problems and causes, options to address them, and implementation considerations. These institutions will also experiment with new ways of gathering citizen feedback and feeding it into policy discussions. IDRC will offer support to the research centers to strengthen their institutional capacities, and to share lessons with peer centers and international audiences.
