brief overview of gender in vietnam
Brief Overview of Gender in Vietnam
  • Vietnam has made significant progress in gender equality (legal framework, education, infant and maternal mortality, participation, etc.)
  • Important challenges remain, both socially and economically (health insurance coverage, employment, education gaps for ethnic minorities, poverty among widows, etc.)
  • Policy actions are needed to address these challenges in the context of an economy making the transition from low to middle income

what cps says on gender
What CPS says on Gender

The Bank’s support to gender in the CPS has four key elements:

  • To support Government in improving the implementation of the Law on Gender Equality and the National Strategy on Gender Equality, in part by building gender awareness and capacity within relevant ministries;
  • To support the development of a national gender data system by building on the recent development of the National Gender Statistical Indicator System;
  • To apply a gender lens to identify opportunities to integrate gender more systematically into Bank operations, including by making the systematic collection of data disaggregated by gender a guiding principle; and
  • To help close the knowledge gap through quantitative and qualitative research on gender issues.

All of these areas of action are cross-cutting in nature and impact.

what worked pitfalls
What Worked/Pitfalls
  • Analytical underpinnings important, but CGAP or similar plan with concrete actions even more important
  • Consultations with team to get as much ownership as possible – Gender Sector Champions?
  • Strong support from CD, sector management
  • Good coordination with DPs – focus on Comp Advantages
  • Helped that Gender is IDA16 theme
  • Pitfalls:
    • Risk of overpromising – how to make CPS living document
    • Mainstreaming risk – “everywhere is nowhere”
