Donor Rankings, 2021
Germany consistently invests in promoting gender equality, advancing sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) and improving the collection and utilization of demographic data.
Germany’s Feminist Development Policy aims for equal participation of all people in social, political and economic life. It underlines the government’s pledge to eliminate structural inequalities and lasting discrimination of women, girls and other marginalized groups by realizing rights, distributing resources equally and improving representation. This includes a clear commitment to SRHR and is backed by Germany’s investment in programmes promoting gender equality and sexual and reproductive health and rights in the bilateral and multilateral space which offer many opportunities for collaboration with UNFPA.
Complementing UNFPA efforts at the country level, Germany supports partner countries in building resilient sexual and reproductive health services, reducing social and financial barriers and improving access to comprehensive sexuality education amongst others.
Alongside UNFPA, Germany strives to improve the availability and quality of demographic data. Germany has been a longstanding and reliable partner in co-hosting the Government to Government Policy Dialogues on Demographic Diversity and Dividends together with UNFPA and the African Union (“4D Series”).
When women and girls are empowered to make self-determined decisions about their bodies and future, they can contribute to sustainable development, a prosperous society and more just world.Svenja Schulze, Federal Minister for Economic Cooperation and Development
