Empowering Women Through Public Procurement

Women-owned businesses represent one third of the small and medium-sized enterprises of developing countries, but only a fraction of government procurement opportunities for goods and services. This guide helps governments understand what measures to put in place so that more women-owned businesses have access to this important market, which often accounts for 15-20% of GDP. It includes practical national case examples, checklists and overviews for busy decision-makers as well as guidelines for implementation.
