Mainstreaming Gender in Development

The European Commission is committed to promoting gender issues in development cooperation, and that means bringing a gender perspective to all areas of their interventions. A part from being a goal in its own right and one of the five essential principles of EC development cooperation, gender equality has now to be implemented in all cooperation programmes and projects, with specific targets and deadlines for the COM Delegations, European External Action Service (EEAS) and European Union Member States. These obligations come from the EU Gender Action Plan 2010-2015, adopted by the Council in June last year. That means that women’s empowerment, action against violence and discrimination against women and girls must be top of the agenda in EU policy and political dialogue and cooperation programming all around the world.
