Gender equality is a European value but also a proof of aid effectiveness. There is evidence that gender inequality and poverty are closely related.
It is not just that women have lower incomes and are less wealthy; poverty in the narrow financial sense is compounded by women's lack of political power and unequal access to basic human rights; employment, information, social services, infrastructure, natural resources, etc. Addressing gender equality effectively will ensure aid is effective and benefits both sexes equally.

This webinar will provide an overview of the main challenges and opportunities surrounding the promotion of women’s land rights. We will present EU’s engagement in advocating a more gender-responsive approach, both in political and policy dialogue and in the design, implementation and monitoring of specific land governance projects.

Live webinar: September 18th 2019, 2 pm (Brussels time)

This webinar tackles the gender transformative approaches to development, which form an important part of the EU’s Gender Action Plan  - the GAP II.  These gender transformative approaches attempt to go beyond technical solutions to women’s empowerment and try to change the underlying discriminatory social norms that lie at the heart of gender inequality. It also presents the way in which gender transformative approaches are being integrated into the rural sector, by discussing some innovative ideas that emerged recently, from a 3 day conference in Rome on gender transformative approaches.
