GBV and Work Short Term Consultant
IFC – a member of the World Bank Group – is the largest global development institution focused on the private sector in emerging markets. We work with more than 100 countries, using our capital, expertise, and influence to create markets and opportunities in developing countries. In fiscal year 2020, we invested $22 billion in private companies and financial institutions in developing countries, leveraging the power of the private sector to end extreme poverty and boost shared prosperity.

Gender is a cross-cutting corporate priority for IFC, as highlighted in the World Bank Group’s Gender Strategy. Gender equality is not only a social and moral imperative, but also an economic necessity. Across the world, countries are losing $160 trillion in wealth because of differences in lifetime earnings between women and men.
To help close this gap, IFC’s Gender and Economic Inclusion Group (GEIG) works toward a private and public sector that provides women, men, and underserved communities with equal economic opportunities as leaders, employees, entrepreneurs, consumers, and community members. We develop research and evidence on the business case and solutions for reducing gender gaps and including underserved groups; support mobilization through impact investing and social bond principles; work with IFC funds and clients to identify good practices; forge public and private sector partnerships, and provide tailored operational solutions that create economic opportunities and development for all.
In Vietnam, IFC works with a diverse group of firms in agribusiness, banking, and manufacturing sectors to promote better jobs for women. In agriculture specifically, women constitute more than 63 percent of total workforce. Many of them are in vulnerable jobs or are full-time caregivers, and in many cases, under high risks of violence. Recent study shows that one out of three women experienced one or more forms of violence in the last 12 months. Violence against women costs the country an estimated 1.8 percent of GDP, costing the business in the form of productivity losses (8 days of work for women), and costing families such as reduced lifetime earnings of 26 percent, on top of health expenses and other costs.
This assignment aims to assess gender-based violence (GBV) risks to agricultural workers and farmers in a selected supply chain in Vietnam and provide recommendations to reduce and mitigate these risks.
