Guinea-Bissau - Country gender profile - 2015


In preparation for the renewal of discussions with the Government of Guinea-Bissau for the first time since the military coup of April 12, 2012, the African Development Bank (AfDB) country economist for Guinea-Bissau approached UN Women-Bissau and the two organizations formed a partnership with the Government to produce a country gender profile. The AfDB initiated the Gender Profile in the context of two events: the inauguration on June 23, 2014 of a new democratically-elected government in Guinea-Bissau and the return of international funding partners; and the publication in January 2014 of the Bank’s new Gender Strategy for 2014–2018.
