 Synthesis of evidence on the effect of women's economic empowerment on economic growth.

In partnership with the United Kingdom’s Department for International Development (DFID) and The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, the International Development Research Centre is pleased to announce a new call for research proposals concerning the Growth and Economic Opportunities for Women (GrOW) program on the effect of women’s economic empowerment on economic growth.

The GrOW program supports research that generates new evidence on women’s economic empowerment, gender equality, and economic growth in low-income countries. The aim is to support policies and interventions that improve economic outcomes and opportunities for poor women in these countries.

This call will support a top-quality review and summary of the existing research and evidence  of the effect of women's economic empowerment on enconomic growth, through a systematic review. For more information about the program, please visit:
