Emerging Issues

Catalyze Change

In today's world, new ideas, practices and solutions to address global problems emerge constantly. Dynamic trends in technologies, economies and societies can catalyze change in powerful ways.

From time to time, ICRW examines these issues to determine how the impact on the lives of women and girls. We apply our experience and intellectual leadership in the field of gender and development to analyze how cutting-edge ideas can become game changers for women. And we translate our insights into practical recommendations and actions that will move the agenda forward.

Ultimately, our goal is to harness the power of great ideas that give women the opportunities to change our world for the better.
