 ‌‌ From ambition to results: delivering on gender equality in donor institutions (2014)This study finds unprecedented political and policy commitment from OECD Development Assistance Committee (DAC) donors to accelerating progress towards gender equality, women’s empowerment and women’s rights.

Gender equality and women’s rights in the post-2015 agenda – a foundation for sustainable development (2013). This OECD-wide paper reiterates the call for a post-2015 framework that retains a standalone goal on gender equality and integrates gender-specific targets and indicators in the other goals.

  • Aid in support of women's economic empowerment (2012). Economic empowerment aims to raise the capacity of women and men to participate in, contribute to and benefit from growth processes in ways which recognise the value of their contributions, respect their dignity and make it possible to negotiate a fairer distribution of the benefits of growth. This chapter examines DAC members’ aid to women’s economic empowerment in 2007-08.

  • Aid in support of gender equality in education and health (2012). This chapter examines the extent to which Development Assistance Committee (DAC) donors’ aid to education and health addressed gender equality objectives in 2009-2010. It compares these aid flows against global gaps in education and health to provide a picture of how aid can be more effectively targeted to enable more girls and women to access education and health.
