Oct 1998
The overall goal of the Bank's Women in Development (WID) Policy is to improve the socioeconomic situation of women in Latin America and the Caribbean and to improve the performance of Bank projects by enhancing women's contributions. To assist project officers in this task, gender guidelines, or resource books, are being prepared in specific sectors and economic structures and markets of Bank Activity. The information in this resource book is focused primarily on training issues regarding skills acquisition in the urban manufacturing and service sectors.
