Gender Dimensions of Trade Facilitations and Logistics

Published: April 25, 2012

The World Bank’s International Trade Department and the Gender and Development Unit in the Poverty Reduction and Economic Management network are collaborating to produce guidance notes in order to help people working in the field identify and assess the gender dimensions of trade projects. These resources will be of particular interest to practitioners working on trade facilitation, trade policy, and trade competitiveness projects.  The first guidance note discusses why gender matters for trade facilitation. It gives examples of projects that have integrated the gender dimension and what that has meant for project outcomes. In addition, the note provides practical advice and templates on how gender can be better integrated into these types of projects.
