World Bank's Programs on Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) and Gender Equality

June 22, 2004

Sponsored by: The Tokyo Development Learning Center (TDLC) & the Gender and Development Group, World Bank

The session had video links to Tokyo Development Learning Center, Kobe University, Nagoya University, and to Melbourne, Australia.

Since October 2000, the World Bank has been looking into the ways ICT can be used to overcome gender inequalities. This seminar shared this experience and lessons on how to incorporate gender issues in projects, including practical steps for design and implementation, and then discussed the topics with Japanese audiences. The session also reported on the outcomes of the recent global e-discussion on "ICTs and Gender Equality."
