Accountability for Poverty Reduction
Monitoring and Evaluation of Poverty Reduction Strategies in Latin America - 2006 - Executive Summary
Kristin Komives , Geske Dijkstra
This report analyzes the contribution of the PRS process to promoting gender equity in policies to reduce poverty and in strengthening the women´s movement.Taking into account unequal gender relations and promoting gender equality are important not only for addressing female poverty more effectively, but also for the reduction of poverty in general. The actual attention for gender in the PRS-documents is limited and, with the partial exception of Bolivia, a gender focus is absent from the poverty diagnosis and from the programmes and actions.
