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 for Sustainable Development acknowledges the greater societal benefits of putting women, girls, and LGBTI persons on an equal footing. It underlines the government’s pledge to eliminate structural inequalities and lasting discrimination by realizing rights, using resources and improving representation. This includes a clear commitment to SRHR, backed by the promise of funding programs promoting gender equality in the bilateral and multilateral space.
The development of partner country capacities to generate quality demographic data for policymaking complements Germany’s efforts in advancing UNFPA’s different mandate areas. Better demographic data helps anticipate and address the evolving needs of populations at national and local levels. Germany has been a longstanding and reliable partner in co-hosting the Government-Government Policy Dialogues on Demographic Diversity and Dividends together with UNFPA and the African Union (“4D Series”).
These focal areas of German development cooperation have offered many opportunities for collaboration with UNFPA. Germany is valued as a key contributor to UNFPA core resources. Germany also contributes to the UNFPA Supplies Partnership, UNFPA’s flagship programme for family planning, and the Maternal and Newborn Health Thematic Fund, supporting midwifery training, obstetric fistula repair surgeries and other activities to strengthen maternal and newborn health and well-being and mortality reduction.
