Gender equality is a guiding principle and quality feature of our work. It is an engine and key attribute of a future worth living around the world.
Gender Equality and Women’s Empowerment feature prominently in the 2030 Agenda, the new European Consensus on Development and the OECD Global Forum on Development and the European Development Days in 2018. With its Coalition Agreement the new German Government, which took office in March 2018, firmly put its weight behind the promotion of gender equality and women’s empowerment.
Thanks to the GIZ-wide commitment, the Safeguards+Gender Management System introduced in 2016, and excellent submissions to the GIZ Gender Competition, we are well-equipped to actively contribute to the promotion of gender equality around the world.
