World Bank 2012 Report, Gender Equality & Development 1024 464 Euro Mediter

This year’s “World Development Report: Gender Equality and Development” argues that gender
equality is a core development objective in its own right. It is also smart economics. Greater gender
equality can enhance productivity, improve development outcomes for the next generation, and
make institutions more representative.
The Report also focuses on four priority areas for policy going forward:
1) reducing excess female mortality and closing education gaps where they remain;
2) improving access to economic opportunities for women;
3) increasing women’s voice and agency in the household and in society;
4) limiting the reproduction of gender inequality across generations.
