Development Experts Examine USAID’s Draft Policy On Gender Equality, Women’s Empowerment

Brookings Institution’s “Future Development”: USAID’s draft policy retrenches on gender equality
George Ingram, senior fellow for Global Economy and Development at Brookings, and Nora O’Connell, vice president for Public Policy and Advocacy at Save the Children, discuss the draft revision of USAID’s policy on gender equality and women’s empowerment, writing, “As USAID looks ahead to what’s over the horizon in a post-COVID world, having a strong, technical, forward-looking gender policy is vital. Unfortunately, the current draft will undermine USAID’s ability to meet [gender equality challenges]” (9/10).
