Description and results


The Innovating for Gender Equality Fund aims to invest in innovations that specifically seek to improve gender equality and/or empower women and a portfolio of solutions promoting gender equality from which lessons learned and best practices could be identified, documented and shared broadly. The Innovating for Gender Equality Fund is a sub-fund of the Global Innovation Fund (GIF). GIF is a non-profit innovation fund whose mission is to find, fund and scale-up cost effective, evidence-based innovations having the potential to improve the lives of people living on less than $5 a day. GIF funds proposals from other organizations that aim to deliver development results more effectively, quicker or cheaper than standard practice, through grants, loans and equity investments ranging from UDS $50,000 to $15 million.

Expected results

The expected outcomes for this project include: (1) increase the number of promising gender equality advancing innovations that are identified and put on a path to scale; and (2) improve the identification and dissemination of lessons learned on how to identify, implement, monitor and evaluate innovations that advance gender equality.
