Global Consultation outcome report: From words to action – Promoting gender equality and transformative action through the Grand Bargain

Published Date

FOGGOn 13 December 2019, UN Women and the Grand Bargain Friends of Gender Group (FoGG) organized a global consultation in Geneva to enable dialogue among the Grand Bargain (GB) Facilitation Group, Workstream co-conveners, signatories, and representatives of local women-led and women’s rights organizations (WLOs and WROs) on results to date and priorities for 2020. This consultation event was the culmination of three regional consultations with local WLOs and WROs in Addis Ababa, Jakarta and Amman (between July and August 2019) and led to the formulation of a roadmap of priority actions for the FoGG for 2020.

The objectives of the workshop were:

  • Take stock of the progress in incorporating gender equality and empowerment of women and girls (GEEWG) in the Grand Bargain (GB), including by hearing from women-led and women’s rights organizations, and identify what efforts have worked well and why.
  • Identify priority areas of focus for the FoGG in 2020.
