The Caribbean Development Bank (CDB), through its Gender Equality Policy and Operational Strategy (GEPOS) and implementation framework, aims to mainstream gender equality in its work with Borrowing Member Countries (BMCs), clients and stakeholders. The Bank’s Strategic Plan (2015-2019) also recognises gender equality as a major cross-cutting theme, and in mainstreaming gender equality across all its strategic objectives, CDB is committed to allocating resources to analyzing and addressing gender inequalities in its operations and within its BMCs.
Guided by the GEPOS and Strategic Plan, CDB commissioned the development of Country Gender Assessments (CGAs) for 10 BMCs in the period 2012-2015. Three CGAs for Anguilla, Belize and St. Lucia were conducted in 2011, which were revised and updated in 2015. CGAs for Antigua & Barbuda, Dominica, Grenada, and St. Kitts & Nevis were completed in 2014, and those for Barbados, Montserrat, and St. Vincent & the Grenadines in 2015. The key findings and recommendations of these 10 Country Gender Assessments are presented in this Synthesis Report.
