"Sector-specific entry points, key questions, and sample objectives and indicators to consider how RBF can be used to close the gender gap"

In spaces of urban poverty, such as slums, women and girls experience overlapping disadvantages that arise from the insecurity of land tenure, sanitation inadequacies, over-crowding, safety, poor street lighting, risks of gender-based violence (GBV) in public transport, inadequate elder care services and child care facilities, and other stresses of urban life. 

How to Close Gender Gaps with Results-Based Financing in Urban Projects report serves as a tool to project teams working on Results-Based Financing (RBF) projects in the urban sector. It provides sector-specific entry points, key questions to consider, and sample objectives and indicators that can be used to consider how RBF can be used to close the gender gap.
