Published by IFC Sustainability
This series of six Gender and Investment Climate Reform Assessments for Papua New Guinea, Samoa, Solomon Islands, Timor-Leste, Tonga, and Vanuatu are the result of collaboration between the Australian Agency for International Development (AusAID) and IFC. The reports ask whether women face different or additional investment climate constraints to those faced by men. And they make recommendations aimed at ensuring that women benefit from ongoing efforts to improve the investment climate on the same basis as their male counterparts.
