Infrastructure is not gender neutral. This discussion brings together leading development finance institutions to discuss their commitments to addressing gender-based violence through infrastructure investments.

This is all the more critical in the wake of COVID-19, as rates of gender-based violence are rising worldwide while governments are simultaneously investing in infrastructure as part of response and recovery initiatives. It is vital to recognize the critical role governments play in infrastructure investment.
