Despite the existence of a legal framework and national plans to ensure equality between men and women, Brazil and Mali continue to face a number of challenges to the effective implementation of gender-sensitive policies. These shared issues were addressed in the webinar “How to promote gender-responsive policies – The Examples of Brazil and Mali“, organized on June 29 by the Brazil Learning Initiative for a World without Poverty (WWP) and the Socialprotection.org. platform.
The event was hosted by the panelists Ana Julieta Teodoro Cleaver, Specialist in Public Policy and Governmental Management of the Brazilian Ministry of Planning, Development and Management, and Tounkara Sophie Soucko, Mali´s Permanent Secretary of National Gender Policy of the Ministry for the Promotion of Women, Children and Family. Bénédicte de la Brière, Lead Economist of the Gender Cross-Cutting Solutions Area at the World Bank Group, was the Moderator.
