CDB aiming to strengthen its gender equality policy

THE Caribbean Development Bank is seeking to strengthen its Gender Equality Policy and Operational Strategy (GEPOS).

In this effort, the bank has issued an invitation to individuals with technical expertise in gender equality to sign on to its Standby Roster of gender consultants to support the Bank’s implementation of the strategy.

Nineteen specific areas of interest have been identified from within its spheres of activity, which include: Infrastructure/ Public Infrastructure and Service Delivery; Education and Training; Poverty/Poverty Analysis; Citizen Security and Gender-Based Violence; and Management for Development Results/ Monitoring and Evaluation.

The CDB’s Operations Officer for Gender and Development, Dr. Carolina Ferracini, explained that the roster will also be utilised as a database for consultants to provide gender expertise to assist in the implementation of the Bank’s Strategic Plan, Special Development Fund and related programmes and projects. She also encouraged persons to share information about the roster invitation within their networks.
