World Bank Gender World Development Report: Information and Advocacy
In 2012, the World Bank's World Development Report (WDR) will be devoted to gender for the first time. As groups with a strong interest in gender, social justice and the World Bank, Gender Action and the UK-based Bretton Woods Project are co-hosting a discussion forum to inform global civil society about the gender WDR and coordinate responses.
With this forum, Gender Action and the Bretton Woods Project aim to ensure
- Information about the gender WDR is widely shared;
- Civil society groups are prepared to campaign and conduct advocacy
on the WDR platform;
- Coherent and coordinated public responses emerge to challenge the
World Bank's approach.
We encourage activists, campaigners, CSOs and researchers to join the discussion! Upon joining the mailing list, we urge participants to read the archived messages, as they will contain useful information about the WDR process, key contacts at the World Bank, and initial drafts of the document outline. Join the discussion by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
