In 2009, the Caribbean Development Bank adopted a Gender Equality Policy in response to a number of gender equality issues that posed challenges internal to the Bank and its operations with external stakeholders in Borrowing Member Countries. The Bank also adopted an Operational Strategy to assist the Bank to mainstream and integrate gender in both its internal and external operations.

The objectives of the assessment focused on relevance of the Gender Equality and Operational Strategy;  the performance and effectiveness of the Bank’s approach to implementation; opportunities and/or constraints impacting implementation; and identification of key lessons and recommendations for improving implementation processes. 

The report presents 7 findings, 7 lessons and 15 recommendations
