1. Executive Summary
The Kenya refugee operation is often cited as an example of a protracted refugee situation with traditional refugee camps in place for the past 20 or so years.

Trois cas concrets au Pérou, en RDC et au Maroc apportent la réponse à la question. Celui qui, à l’instar du Trade for Development Centre, considère le commerce équitable et durable comme un levier dans la lutte contre la pauvreté et de réduction des inégalités, doit se poser deux questions lors de l’approbation des projets : qui effectue le travail de production et qui ère les bénéfices, une fois que le projet accroît les revenus ?

At USAID, we believe that gender equality and women’s empowerment isn’t a part of development but at the core of development. Water, energy, agriculture, conflict and health can all affect men and women differently. These differences are not barriers but opportunities to maximize the impact of our work by delivering development in a more targeted, effective and sustainable way. That’s why across our programs in more than 80 countries we are making evidence-based investments in gender equality and female empowerment.
