Coalitions to Achieve Gender Equality at Scale: Gender Development and Coordinating Subcommittees and Networks as Drivers of Change in Zambia

This brief summarizes the findings of a scoping study conducted in February 2015 to understand the strengths and areas of growth of the gender development and coordinating subcommittees at the district and provincial levels in western Zambia, and of the gender networks at the national level.

While the findings presented in this brief are specific to western Zambia, the challenges identified are shared across most districts and provinces in Zambia, as well as in many African countries such as Sierra Leone, where there are gender ministries and similar network structures.
