Key questions are:
- How does women’s economic empowerment link with development?
- What are the best avenues, tools and mechanisms to bring this link forward?
- How can we ensure that women are seen as protagonists of their own empowerment?
- How do we strengthen women to have the resources to be economically successful?
- Do we need to rethink the current model of economic empowerment?
