Women in Development, an illustrated booklet published by the Overseas Development Administration (ODA) Great Britain
Women in Development, an illustrated booklet published by the Overseas Development Administration (ODA) in Great Britain sets out the Government's policy in this area and details the wide variety of measures taken by the ODA to safeguard and promote the interests of women in developing countries. Recognition of women's role in development is an important influence on ODA policies. Wherever possible, projects in the ODA's bilateral aid programme are designed and implemented with women in mind. Research, evaluation and monitoring studies are undertaken to determine both how women can become more closely involved in the development of their country and how they can gain greater benefits from ODA projects. The booklet, which includes short case histories of 18 projects in Asia, Africa, Central and South America, demonstrates the diversity of the ODA's increasing involvement in this key area. Women in Development is available free from the ODA'S Information Department, Room 918, Eland House. Stag Place London SW1E5DH U K
