More on the Study
The purpose of the study is to synthesize the evidence to date on the relationship between WEE interventions and the experience of GBV and identify research and implementation knowledge gaps based on the review of existing impact evaluations, operations research, literature reviews, and programmatic guidance.
This study has a specific interest in the monitoring and evaluation (M&E) of the distal and proximate factors in the relationship between WEE and GBV in order to develop recommendations for further activities to map the pathways between WEE and GBV. We conducted a systematic review of the literature as well as key informant interviews with program staff and experts from organizations implementing and/or conducting research on economic empowerment interventions targeted to women in sub-Saharan Africa. Findings from this study point to number of recommendations for programs that seek to address the complex relationship between the economic empowerment of women and girls and GBV.
