Document Summary:

This study conducts an exploratory review of the literature on infrastructure and gender to discuss best practices and lessons learned for mainstreaming gender and identify gender gaps. The scope of this study is limited to gender mainstreaming in upstream infrastructure planning and implementation. 

Document Details:

The review goes beyond publications produced by MDBs and other multilateral institutions to include academic literature on gender & politics. This literature is particularly helpful in understanding (i) the complexities of gender-based social marginalization, and (ii) challenges that entrenched gender norms pose in understanding gendered needs for infrastructure and producing equitable outcomes through interventions.
