dc.description.abstract This case study showcases key lessons and impacts from the University of Central Asia (UCA) Pathways to Innovation (P2I) program, a three-year program to promote knowledge and analytical skills in mathematics, science, and economic policy in Afghanistan, Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan. It has identified workable tactics that produce changes in gender dynamics and women’s access to education. Despite a limited enabling environment, UCA elevated women to teaching positions. The program provided training of over a thousand teachers, students, and faculty at teacher training centres, universities and rural schools in North-Eastern Afghanistan to promote gender equality in education, and through gender- responsive pedagogy. en
