Description of the Project:
The Project “Reducing Poverty – Reducing Inequality” supports the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) in updating, adapting and applying strategies and concepts to overcome global poverty and reduce inequality. The goal is to increase the effectiveness of the German Development Cooperation to reduce poverty and inequalities.Recent studies confirm that equality can fundamentally contribute to poverty reduction and sustainable development. This has put the challenge of reducing inequality at the heart of development cooperation policy and practice, and it is widely recognised that success can only be achieved through exchange and collaboration between a broad spectrum of organisations and individuals. To make this happen, GIZ is considering setting up an inequalities multi-actor network. In 2017, GIZ mandated Skat to develop a concept for the network.
The main activities carried out by Skat were:
- Interviews with key stakeholders and donor organisations;
- Asessment of needs and potential interest;
- Development of a concept for the establishment of a network on inequalities
- The concept was finished in November 2017 and the main results were presented to staff of GIZ and BMZ .
