Water. Power. Roads. Gender. - Connecting for Development is a BBL on Gender and Infrastructure hosted by the WBG Gender Action Plan (GAP) to highlight some of the GAP-financed work in energy, transport and water. The meeting focused on how GAP-funded projects were designed and implemented to help improve women's access to resources and technologies. Participants from government, civil society and academia as well as World Bank Group staff discussed interventions, which could make infrastructure work better for women.
