Fostering gender-responsive public procurement: Understanding the barriers and solutions to include women-led businesses in Public procurement in East Africa

How can gender inequality in public procurement in East Africa be addressed when women owned enterprises win less than 1% of public contracts  yet annually governments spend over 65% of national budgets through public procurement?

Funded under the Growth and Economic Opportunities for Women (GrOW) program by the International Development Research Centre (IDRC) with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation the project seeks to examine barriers to women’s participation in public procurement in East Africa and propose solutions to these challenges with the ultimate goal of improving their access to government procurement opportunities  and betterment of their  livelihoods and their families             

 AFIC is implementing the project in partnership with Open Contracting Partnership (OCP) and The Institute for Social Accountability (TISA).
