A new initiative led by the Enhanced Integrated Framework (EIF), ‘Empower Women, Power Trade’, aims at shaping policy and bringing women in LDCs into decision-making bodies as active and equal participants. The initiative will build the evidence base to support gender-sensitive policies through the EIF’s country-specific trade studies. Financial support of USD 10 million will be directed to projects submitted by country governments, with co-funding through the leveraging of existing programmes by EIF partner agencies.
