Third Meeting of the Gender Equality Community of Practice for Finance Ministers
October 11, 2015Lima, Peru

The third meeting of the Gender Equality Community of Practice for Finance Ministers will take place at the 2015 Annual Meetings of the World Bank Group and the International Monetary Fund in Lima, Peru. The meeting will focus on financing for gender equality results, building on momentum generated at the Addis Ababa conference on Financing for Development and by the new Sustainable Development Goals. More specifically, the session will explore how ministries of finance can mobilize internal, external, and private resources for development—and where to invest to maximize results, boosting shared, robust growth and taking aim at poverty.

This meeting will: (i) help committed finance ministers expand efforts to close gender gaps through targeted use of budgets and public finances; (ii) showcase country-level efforts and innovations developed with committed finance ministers to help identify and learn from successful MOF initiatives; and (iii) energize collaboration, both among member ministers and at the sherpa level.
