Research Proposals: Growth and Economic Opportunities for Women

The UK's Department for International Development, The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, and Canada's International Development Research Centre announce the launch of the jointly-funded research initiative Growth and Economic Opportunities for Women (GrOW). 

This GrOW program aims to generate new evidence on women's economic empowerment, gender equality, and growth in low-income countries. The program will address key evidence gaps by generating and synthesizing rigorous empirical research. It will also stimulate innovative partnerships and ways of working to ensure that robust evidence helps shape policies and programs to deliver better development outcomes for women, economies, and societies more broadly. The program will bring together leading researchers from around the world to work collaboratively in addressing critical knowledge gaps.
With a focus on low-income countries in sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia, the program will produce high-quality evidence on three sets of inter-related questions:
  1. What are the nature and magnitude of barriers to women’s economic empowerment and to closing gender gaps in earnings and productivity? How can these barriers be overcome?
  2. How do specific patterns of economic growth and types of structural change affect women’s economic empowerment and gender equality?
  3. How do women's economic empowerment and gender equality affect economic growth?
Themes 1 and 2 will be explored through innovative new research projects, developed through a competitive call for Outline Proposals, launched on July 25, 2013.
Theme 3 will be addressed through a series of commissioned papers (Evidence Synthesis) analyzing the best-available evidence. A separate call on this theme will be launched soon.
For an overview of this program, please read the GrOW brochure 
For more information, read the Call for Outline Research Proposals (PDF)
To apply, complete and submit the online application.
Applicants are strongly encouraged to read a background paper by Naila Kabeer, as well as two IDRC literature reviews: Women's Economic Empowerment and Economic Growth, and Women and the Care Economy.
