Guidance Note " Establishing Gender-Responsive Approaches to COVID-19 Response and Recovery"

The coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic continues to have devastating impacts on women and girls.

We need to further strengthen our efforts to promote gender-responsive activities in development cooperation to leave no woman and girl behind.

We have published a guidance note on the impact of the expansion of COVID-19 on women and girls and the actions needed to implement gender-responsive development cooperation.

Please use this guidance note as a reference for planning and implementing JICA's projects for COVID-19 response.
