This report investigates how to make incremental improvements to existing programmes and learn more about how they can benefit women, whilst continuing to build on what is already working in the field. This report recommends the following:
- Results should be disaggregated by gender for all programmes.
- Ideally, a country-specific diagnostic should be conducted before programme activities are specified.
- Diagnostics should include simple primary research to fill data gaps and to test whether official procedures are implemented as written.
- Where primary research is not feasible, a lighter touch diagnostic analysis should be undertaken using the many existing sources of information.

Women, Business and the Law is a platform and report that analyses laws and regulations affecting women’s economic inclusion in 190 economies. Every year, the project presents progress on eight indicators structured around women’s interactions with the law as they move through their careers: Mobility, Workplace, Pay, Marriage, Parenthood, Entrepreneurship, Assets, and Pension.
This year’s study took place amidst a global pandemic that threatens progress toward gender equality. In this context, barriers were identified to women’s economic participation and reform of discriminatory laws encouraged. Important findings on government responses to the COVID-19 crisis and pilot research related to childcare and women’s access to justice are also included.
