The main objectives of this paper are:

1) Identify critical gender issues related to women’s economic and governance roles in both rural and urban areas, for the development of the WBG's

Part of this discussion will review the internal and external challenges with harmonizing gender and environmental mainstreaming in dedicated and sectoral projects.
