Financing for Gender Equality in the Context of the Sustainable Development Goals

This publication identifies a series of macro-level tools to create a supportive environment and generate the resources to promote Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) related to gender equality. A key argument is that financing for gender equality can be self-sustaining because of the feedback effects from gender equality to economy-wide well-being. The author explores investments into physical and social infrastructures, as well as monetary policy tools to promote gender equality.
