ICR4WEE Conference

On 5 and 6 June 2024, the ICR Facility will organise the ICR4WEE Conference focus on creating better legal, institutional, and regulatory conditions for businesses to grow and operate, as well as to improve women’s participation in policy-making processes.

Women’s Economic Empowerment (WEE) is recognised as a top priority for sustainable economic development. However, women are still largely underrepresented in decision-making processes and face various structural legal and social gaps in labour force participation, wages, access to finance, access to formal and informal networks, etc.

Acting today to strengthen WEE through innovative, gender-transformative economic policies is critical.  This is where the ICR Facility comes in. 

The ICR4WEE Conference will discuss how investment climate reforms (ICR) can be used to strengthen Women’s Economic Empowerment (WEE).
