Gender, finance and the IFC

17 April 2009

On International Women’s Day the International Finance Corporation (IFC) announced its sponsorship of the first Gender Investment Index series, an initiative of its Gender Entrepreneurship Markets programme devised to mainstream gender into IFC work.

No gender organisations appear to be involved. Meanwhile US-based NGO, Gender Action, released a resource on climate change, the first in a series on issues that have gender impacts.
