Our work with Women in Business

The economic empowerment of women is increasingly seen as one of the most important forces behind economic growth and the fight against poverty. We are recognised leaders in providing fresh thinking on issues women entrepreneurs face and in setting out clear tools for promoting gender-sensitive investment climate reforms.

We work closely with governments, the International Finance Corporation (IFC), the World Bank (WB) and the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD), to support the implementation of gender-sensitive investment climate reforms. We have worked in Asia, North Africa, sub-Saharan Africa and the Pacific, to analyse the gender dimensions of investment climates, design and facilitate the implementation of recommendations to integrate gender into reform programmes, and develop gender-sensitive monitoring and evaluation frameworks. Examples of our work include:

  • A study to better understand how legislation, and the way it is applied, affects women’s access to credit and their economic empowerment in Morocco and the Kyrgyz Republic (EBRD, 2013).
  • Innovative thinking and practical advice to address common issues facing women entrepreneurs around the world (such as business entry, taxation, trade logistics, secured lending, alternative dispute resolution and special economic zones), which resulted in a contribution to the IFC’s Gender Dimensions of Investment Climate Reform publication (co-authored by LDP director Clare Manuel; IFC, 2010).
  • Detailed programmes and tools for the IFC Sydney Office to integrate gender within its on-going investment climate reform programme in the six Pacific states of Papua New Guinea, Samoa, Solomon Islands, Timor-Leste, Tonga and Vanuatu (IFC, 2009).

Rolex COSC Chronometer certifies each of these rolex replica uk watches (as they do with most of their watches) and it has proven to be highly accurate and reliable (for a mechanical watch, of course). If I had to replica watches sale have a complaint about the Rolex Submariner 114060, it would be about the coating over the sapphire crystal. Rolex puts anti-reflective (AR) coating on the bottom of the crystal only, and not the rolex replica uk top. That means that there is glare; but not too much since it is flat crystal. I like the idea of having so much AR coating on a sapphire crystal rolex replica that it looks invisible and that you can stick your hublot replica sale finger right onto the dial. I am not sure why rolex replica uk does not use AR coating on the top of the crystal, but I am sure they have a good reason. I have have two hypothesized reasons why they don't. First is because AR coating can hublot replica uk wear off and Rolex doesn't like for their watches to have areas that are too susceptible to wear.
