This Gender Assessment (CGA), commissioned by the Caribbean Development Bank (CDB), provides a gender analysis of the economic, social and governance sectors in St. Lucia. As per the Bank’s Gender Equality Policy and Operational Strategy (GEPOS) and implementation framework, which focuses resources on analysing and addressing gender inequalities in its operations and within its Borrowing Member Countries (BMCs), the CGA aims to enhance the effectiveness of CDB’s development programmes to respond to development needs related to gender equality. It is expected to be the first and most critical step towards gender-responsive planning and programming as part of a process of mainstreaming gender into CDB’s mission programmes and project activities.
