Dear IATI Connect,
In October 2020, Publish What You Fund embarked on a multi-year project to improve the transparency of funding for women’s economic empowerment (WEE), women’s financial inclusion (WFI), women’s empowerment collectives (WECs), and gender integration (GI). The objective of the research was to provide greater insight into the international funding landscape for WEE in Kenya, Nigeria, and Bangladesh between 2015–2019.
The research team has produced draft country-based WEE and WFI tools that allow other stakeholders to replicate our recent research to track international funding to WEE and WFI. We are currently seeking input from key stakeholders on the presentation of the tools and how to best disseminate the tools to ensure maximum utilization. Therefore, we would like to welcome written feedback from the members of IATI Connect on the same by the 15th of September.
Please find the two funding tracking tools produced using our methodologies available now for review:
The WFI funding tracking tool:[https://www.publishwhatyoufund.org/download/wfi-funding-tracking-tool/]
The WEE funding tracking tool:[https://www.publishwhatyoufund.org/download/wee-funding-tracking-tool/]
Please be aware these are still drafts and are not for wider distribution beyond IATI Connect.
