The report summarizes the findings of 18 research studies commissioned across four categories: entrepreneurship, farming, wage employment and young women’s employment. Some conducted new data analysis, while others reviewed existing evidence. On the basis of the commission review studies, the project compiled a database of 136 published empirical evaluations of programs and policies. The report systematically analyzed this evidence to identify whether interventions led to an increase in women’s porductivity and earnings. It also looked at the cost-effectiveness and sustainability of the programs, where this information was available. The report’s overview draws on the results of the commissioned studies and the database of evaluations to build the Roadmap for Action and derive Key Lessons Learned.
