No 1294, IFPRI discussion papers from International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI)
This paper starts by reflecting on the concept and measurement of womenâ€™s empowerment and then reviews some of the structural interventions that aim to influence underlying gender norms in society and eradicate gender discrimination. It then proceeds to review the evidence of the impact of three types of interventionsâ€”cash transfer programs, agricultural interventions, and microfinance programsâ€”on womenâ€™s empowerment, nutrition, or both.
