2012 - Gambia - Country Gender Profile
This country gender profile aims to provide a picture of the policies, programs and practice areas that have promoted women’s empowerment and gender equality in the Gambia. The study has been undertaken at a time of remarkable momentum for advancing women’s rights and the gender equality agenda through the adoption of the Women’s Act 2010 and the new National Gender Policy 2010-2020. The country gender profile is part of the non-lending activities of the Bank prescribed in the Joint Africa Development Bank/World Bank Country Strategy Paper 2008-2011.
