This engagement note in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) aims to identify entry points that respond to the strategic goals and country development priorities announced by GCC member states. This note provides an overview of the recent progress and key economic challenges facing women in GCC countries of the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region. The note builds on GCC country priorities and aims to support ongoing governmental efforts toward economic diversification and fostering knowledge-based economies.
