The Government of Italy’s approach to international development strongly aligns with UNFPA’s mandate. 

Italy takes a targeted and 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 training, health education, and access to services; and promoting economic and social empowerment. Women’s empowerment is one of the focus areas of the Italian presidency of G7, along with the geopolitical situation in the Mediterranean, international security, health and international cooperation.

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

Mario Giro, Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation
Women’s well-being worldwide is one of Italy’s main priorities. Our Development Cooperation strategy, consistent with the new framework of the Agenda 2030 and SDG 5, aims to ensure that women and girls receive proper attention and assistance in the areas of maternal health, youth education, human rights and gender equality, as well as emerging issues on population dynamics. Gender issues are a cross-cutting priority in all relevant projects funded by Italy. In our actions, we continue to partner with UNFPA, which is of great value in these specific thematic areas.
Mario Giro, Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation
