Gender equality contributes to poverty reduction, results in higher levels of human capital for future generations, and improves the development effectiveness of public investments.For all these reasons, promoting gender equality is pivotal to accelerate the process of economic and social development in Latin America and the Caribbean.

That’s why in November 2010 the IDB approved a new Operational Policy on Gender Equality in Development.It commits the Bank to improve its capacity to apply a gender perspective systematically across operations and analytical work, as well as to compromise direct investment in promoting gender equality and women empowerment.
