International Financial Institutions (IFIs) are powerful animals. They impact millions of lives. They set rules.They shape our futures. IFIs led by the World Bank, have adopted an approach called “using country systems”. Country systems emphasize the centrality of national regulation and domestic public policies.

What is the history of this idea of using country systems?
What does that mean from a gender perspective?

The webinar will be pitched at the level of those who are interested in IFIs but may not have much familiarity with the processes and architecture.
