Donor Rankings, 2020
Germany consistently invests in promoting gender equality, advancing sexual and reproductive health and rights and improving the collection and utilization of demographic data.
Germany’s Development Action Plan on Gender Equality lays out priority issues for gender equality, including access to justice and legal services for women and girls; elimination of gender-based violence; women's rights and decision-making in conflict situations; comprehensive sexuality education; and sexual and reproductive health and rights. The latter is also one of the priorities of Germany's development cooperation in the health sector. The development of partner country capacities to generate quality demographic data for policymaking complements these efforts. Better demographic data helps to anticipate and address the evolving needs of populations at national and local levels.
These focal areas of German development cooperation have offered many opportunities for collaboration with UNFPA. Germany has worked with UNFPA on issues such as the prevention and response to gender-based violence in Eastern Europe and the Middle East and efforts to end female genital mutilation. Germany also contributes to the Maternal Health Thematic Fund, supporting midwifery training, obstetric fistula repair surgeries and other activities to strengthen maternal health services.
The work of the United Nations Population Fund is an important contribution towards achieving the goals of the 2030 Agenda, building a decent future for everybody at home together.Dr. Gerd Müller, Federal Minister for Economic Cooperation and Development
