BEAM Exchange, 2016 – 49 pages

This report details the challenges for donor agencies to design and implement gender-transformative programmes. It is both an update of the Making Markets Work for the Poor WEE Framework (the M4P WEE Framework) for those who utilised the earlier resource, and a standalone paper for others who have more recently ventured into the space. However, this paper goes further than the important work of refining concepts, sharing experiences, and offering practical advice per process step; it highlights the paradigm shift that must take place for market systems initiatives to fully embed WEE and to create sustainable and equitable systems change.
