I had the opportunity to visit Tanzania last month, my first mission to Africa since joining the World Bank. It was a long-awaited trip, as I wanted to see for myself what more we can do to support countries that are striving to recover from COVID-19. Coming from Indonesia, I also thought there were experiences that I could share from my own country’s development.

Objective: IFC would like to conduct a private sector gender analysis in three countries – Democratic Republic of Congo, Cote DIvoire and Mozambique. This work will interrogate the role of the private sector in enabling equal opportunities for women to participate in economic development and the gaps thereof. In doing so, it shall consider various gender dimensions in relation to the private sector. These diagnostics will feed into the design of a private sector focused multi-year, multi-sectoral gender program to be led by IFC.
