Gender for Development (brochure)
By 2025, Latin America could increase its GDP by 14% if the region manages to close the gap in women participation in the labor force. In the last 20 years, more than 70 million women joined the workforce in Latin America. This contributed to a 30% reduction of extreme poverty in the region. However this is not enough. There is still a long way to completely eradicate extreme poverty in Latin America. Over the last 15 years, CAF has supported gender-focused initiatives on topics such as economic empowerment, leadership and education. An essential part of CAF's non-reimbursable support is channeled through technical assistance and cooperation projects aimed at institutional strengthening, development of pre-investment studies, public policy dialogues, and generating knowledge on gender.
