GIZ high level dialog with Caren Grown, WBG Senior Director Gender, on Gender in International Cooperation

Gender equality is an engine and elementary feature of a future worth living around the world. As such it features high on the German, European and international agenda. SDG5 was amongst the first SDGs to be reviewed by the United Nations High-level Political Forum on Sustainable Development in July 2017 and forms the main theme of the European Development Days and the OECD Global Forum on Development in 2018.

Against this background a small group of high level GIZ representative from HQ and abroad meet and discuss with Caren Grown, World Bank Group Senior Director Gender, how best to address and overcome existing challenges and make the best use of the current political momentum and lessons learnt in order to deliver on gender equality and women’s rights.

It is the central topic of the OECD Global Forum on Development in April 2018 and the European Development Days 2018 in Brussels on 5th and 6th June
