The World Bank’s Africa Region Gender Innovation Lab (GIL), located within the Africa Region Chief Economist’s Office, conducts impact evaluations to generate evidence on how to close gender gaps in earnings, productivity, assets, and agency, and then uses this evidence to support the design of innovative, scalable interventions to address gender inequality across Africa.
