The African Development Bank and the Republic of Rwanda organize the Global Gender Summit. Being held in Africa for first time, GGS 2019 is taking place at the Kigali Convention Centre, Kigali, Rwanda from November 25th to 27th 2019. With the theme “Unpacking constraints to gender equality”, the summit will consider three dimensions in which gender equality and women’s empowerment can be achieved: scaling up innovative financing; enabling legal, regulatory and institutional environments; and securing women’s participation and voices. UNFPA considers this Summit as a major step to the implementation of Nairobi Summit commitments.
