ICRW, 2018 – 12 pages

This document is intended as a conceptual guide, rather than an operational toolkit. Economic empowerment is a complex process, and the general framework presented here will have to be adapted to meet the needs of specific projects. This document presents:

  • A definition of women’s economic empowerment.
  • A measurement framework that can guide the design, implementation, and evaluation of programs to economically empower women.
  • A set of illustrative indicators that can serve as concrete examples for developing meaningful metrics for success.
