What are the potential pathways for advancing gender equality and empowering adolescent girls? Our next learning event offers a preview of the Africa Regional Report, focusing on the crucial theme of empowering adolescent girls in Africa—with insights and lessons learned applicable to South Asia and elsewhere. This report is a collaboration between the World Bank (Africa GIL in the Africa Chief Economist Office and Human Development Practice Group), The Center for Global Development, and the Population Council. Presentations will walk participants through a conceptual framework for understanding adolescent girls’ empowerment, delve into the unique challenges faced by them in Africa, and highlight effective strategies for promoting their empowerment and the path forward.


The Council’s Fatima Zahra will be amongst the presenters.
