Development Finance Community Should Do More To Incorporate Gender Equality Into Portfolios, Oxfam Policy Adviser Says

Oxfam America’s “Politics of Poverty”: Should women be considered a sector when it comes to humanitarian and development funding?
Aria Grabowski, policy adviser for Accountable Development Finance at Oxfam America, discusses whether and how development financiers are incorporating gender equality into their work. Grabowski writes, “If the development finance community, which is growing in importance, is serious about ensuring women are not continually left behind, at least half of a portfolio should be focused on investing in them. Not to mention, their entire portfolio should incorporate gender analyses to ensure projects are not harming women” (7/30).
