Gender Action brings gender into the agendas of IFI watcher groups which traditionally focus on environment, transparency and accountability issues but often neglect gender dimensions. We also bring IFIs into the work of gender justice and women’s groups which have not yet addressed them. By strengthening partners’ work around IFIs, women’s rights and gender justice, we are multiplying Gender Action’s effectiveness in reducing the negative impacts of IFI investments on poor men and women. Through capacity building, Gender Action is providing training and technical assistance to our partners on how to conduct gender analysis of IFI investments; incorporate a gender perspective in their internal organizational structures; and ensure all their outputs, including advocacy, are gender sensitive. These strategic partnerships strengthen our advocacy.
