PSDI's strategy for supporting women's economic empowerment

A new PSDI publication explains how the economic empowerment of women is integrated throughout our work.

Empowering the Other Half provides an overview of what PSDI has done and will be doing next to economically empower women in the Pacific. 

It also details four EEoW pilot projects PSDI has initiated to demonstrate practical approaches to supporting women’s equal participation in the private sector.

We are pleased to be able to launch this publication today on International Women’s Day, which celebrates the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women and calls for greater action to address inequality.

An article summarizing PSDI’s support for the economic empowerment of women has been published here on the Asian Development Bank website.
