The EU Plan for Action on Gender Equality and Women’s Empowerment was adopted on March 2010. What are the key questions and contributions made by CONCORD during the discussions leading to its approval?

Many recommendations were made during the drafting of the EU Gender Action Plan. In particular, CONCORD called to:

  • Focus on guaranteeing concrete progress by promoting coordinated work between the European and national level
  • Stating a clear reference to the amount and allocation of money to be utilised in practice
  • Ensuring a permanently structured policy multi-stakeholder dialogue throughout the process
  • Emphasising the principle of policy coherence for development and creating ownership of the  GAP by engaging all actors in the process
