The Generation Equality Forum (GEF) is a multi-stakeholder-process for promoting gender equality. The impetus for the GEF came from UN Women – a United Nations entity that promotes gender equality – in cooperation with the governments of France and Mexico.

But what is behind the so-called multi-stakeholder process? What is the history of the GEF and what is Germany's contribution to the implementation of the GEF?

Iris Dill and Sina Thiessen from the GIZ sector programme "Promoting Gender Equality" address these questions in an interview on Partnerships2030, a national platform for promoting multi-stakeholder partnerships. On behalf of the BMZ, the platform supports the implementation of the 2030 Agenda.
