Gender Equality and Women’s Empowerment Operational Plan, 2013–2020 Moving the Agenda Forward in Asia and the Pacific
Published in April 2013 by the Asian Development Bank, this plan sets out the strategic directions and the guiding framework for delivering better gender equality outcomes in Asia and the Pacific region. ADB recognizes that without capturing and unleashing the talents, human capital, and economic potential of half the region’s population—women and girls—the goal of a region free of poverty will not be realized. Gender equality is critical in its own right and essential for better development outcomes in terms of inclusive growth, faster poverty reduction, and achieving the Millennium Development Goals.
