The Italian Development Cooperation approach to the protection, welfare and empowerment of women and girls is fully consistent with UNFPA’s mandate and represents a key priority for our country.

Italy adopted a cross-cutting approach to gender equality, with a focus on ending gender-based violence, including domestic violence and violence in emergency settings; stopping harmful practices such as female genital mutilation and child and forced marriage; strengthening health systems, including through training, health education, and access to services; and promoting economic and social empowerment by putting women and girls at the center of our programmes. Comprehensive women’s empowerment is one of the longstanding priorities of Italian development cooperation, and we look forward to continuing our work with key partners such as UNFPA.

Specific areas of collaboration between Italy and UNFPA include ending female genital mutilation; preventing and responding to gender-based violence, including in humanitarian contexts; promoting sexual and reproductive health and rights; supporting maternal, newborn and child health services; supporting population and housing census; and promoting economic and social empowerment.

Emanuela Claudia Del Re, Vice Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation
The Agenda 2030 and SDG5 can be achieved only if women’s and girls’ well-being, needs and rights are positioned at the centre of our international efforts. In pursuing this objective, the Italian Government continues to prioritize gender and reproductive health and rights in its development cooperation policy and action. In this journey, UNFPA is a valuable and key partner.
