Sri Lanka: Gender Equality Diagnostic of Selected Sectors
Asian Development Bank | July 2016
This publication presents a gender equality diagnostic of education, energy, transport, and water and sanitation in Sri Lanka—four sectors which are the major areas of cooperation between ADB and the Government of Sri Lanka. The sector-focused chapters provide insights into the gender equality issues and considerations relevant to sector planning, related government policies and legal frameworks and commitments, and institutional structures for promoting gender equality actions. Each chapter concludes with gender issues and opportunities to consider in designing sector-related interventions for possible use by and discussion with government, civil society, and development partners.
