Gender equality is an 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 wealth; 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. To address gender equality effectively will therefore ensure aid to be effective and benefit equally women and men, boys and girls.

Gender equality, women’s empowerment and the leave no one behind approach are key to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals. Nevertheless, even if the commitment to mainstreaming or integrating gender analysis and perspective across all instruments and modalities is gaining prominence in the Commission, the practice is not yet as robust as intended. In many contexts gender mainstreaming is happening in the social sectors but is limited to separate components in other sectors. Same applies also to the Rights Based Approach. Then, we need to strengthen our competences, both at HQ and EUD, regarding the new coming programmes.
