The 2019 GGS takes place at the Kigali Convention Center between 25-27 November 2019 under the theme "Unpacking constraints to gender equality".
It is hosted by the Government of Rwanda in collaboration with African Development Bank.
The 2019 GGS focuses on three key dimensions to achieve gender equality and women’s empowerment: scaling up innovative financing; fostering an enabling environment (legal, regulatory & institutional); and ensuring women’s participation & voices.
These dimensions will be articulated around three main thematic areas: climate change, private sector development, and human capital and productive employment.
The digital revolution will also be addressed throughout the sessions as a cross-cutting theme.
