In collaboration with USAID/Sri Lanka and Social Impact, a report on gender and social inclusion.

The USAID/Sri Lanka Gender Equality and Social Inclusion (GESI) analysis aims to provide data to enhance the integration of gender equality and female empowerment in USAID/Sri Lanka’s strategy and programming. The GESI analysis focuses on the following priority thematic areas identified by USAID/Sri Lanka: public finance management, entrepreneurship, trade, private sector, youth employability, justice, reconciliation, media, and natural resource management. The report identifies opportunities for USAID to collaborate with the government, civil society, the private sector, and other donors, to advance gender equality, and makes recommendations to accelerate resilient, broad-based economic growth within the next phase of their 5-year strategic Country Development Cooperation Strategy planning.
