This policy brief provides a critical assessment of the “men for gender equality” field, and proposes new directions for programming and policy on men and boys.

The pandemic has exposed and exacerbated existing gender data gaps that undermine our ability to intentionally craft gender-responsive policies and programmes.

The research also showed that migrant women are more dependent on in-person cash transfer services to send remittances.
