2004 - Ethiopia - Country Gender Profile
The concept for a country gender profile originated during discussions with the Women’s Affairs Office in Ethiopia late 2002. The Bank subsequently followed up on it and received financial support from the Finland Bilateral Funds for the preparation of the MCGP. The mission for the preparation of this MCGP was undertaken during October 2003. The goal of the Ethiopia MCGP is to identify the short and long term gender issues to be addressed and mainstreamed in Bank Group interventions and which are pertinent to poverty reduction and sustainable development in Ethiopia. The MCGP is, however, not meant to provide statistically gender disaggregated data as that would require a different research methodology and approach. It is rather meant to highlight critical issues which may have an impact on Bank projects’ performance and thus may require in-depth analysis at the specific project formulation stage.
