GDD Desk Review Report

The Desk Review Report provides an overview of the current status of the gender digital divide (with a particular focus on mobile phones and mobile Internet, although these are not the only aspects of the gender digital divide), including an analysis of why it exists, why closing the gender digital divide matters, and the potential risks for women and girls in using technology. It also presents some key recommendations on how to mitigate those risks. The primary audience for this Desk Review Report is USAID Gender Advisors; however, the content is useful for other USAID staff as well as implementing partners.
