Gender and Diversity Fund

Main Characteristics

The objective of the Gender and Diversity Fund is to contribute to the equitable and culturally-appropriate development of IDB member countries by fostering gender equality, combating discrimination, and supporting development with identity. The Fund will serve three main target populations: women and men in positions of disadvantage resulting from gender-based discrimination and inequality, indigenous peoples, and Afro-descendants.

Type of Project

Project Development: the integration of gender and diversity issues in country programming processes and operations, as well as the testing of new or existing methodologies that have potential for scaling up or replication in member countries Institutional Strengthening and Capacity Building: to strengthen the institutional capacity of government entities to incorporate the strategic needs and interests of the target populations more effectively in programs and projects; support dialogue among government agencies, indigenous peoples’ organizations, afro-descendant communities and private sector organizations in order to foster effective participation and representation in public and civic life Knowledge Management: support governments’ efforts to incorporate gender and diversity issues in development programs and projects by providing them with the necessary evidence, knowledge and analytical tools
