During FY18 (October 1, 2017 – September 30, 2018), the USAID Bureau for Economic Growth, Education, and Environment (E3) supported technical assistance and knowledge generation on gender equality and women’s empowerment through AGENT—with widespread results. The results presented in this annual review demonstrate that investments in gender equality and women’s empowerment strengthen Bureau and Mission-level capacities to meet the US Government objectives and mandates on gender equality, and compel wider stakeholder action, including:
Improved environmental programming and projects;
Inspiration for new areas of cross-sectoral and collaborative research;
Increased opportunities for economic empowerment and sustainable livelihoods; and
Influencing the broader international, interlinked sustainable development and gender equality agenda by highlighting USAID’s and IUCN’s knowledge and experiences.
This review also provides infographics showcasing the contextualizing these achievements alongside the broader impact of the partnership over the life of the grant to date, as well as a snapshot of what will come from AGENT in FY19.
