EIB at the 2018 European Development Days

    •  Display in:

  • Available in: en
  •  Date: 05 June 2018 - 06 June 2018
  •  Location:
    • Brussels
    • Belgium


With more than 11 900 sustainable investment projects in around 162 countries, the EIB is turning good intentions into reality, including delivering on the UN’s Sustainable Development Goal 5: Gender Equality.

Let’s look at some facts

EIB Group Gender Strategy  

How the EIB is addressing these issues

As the EU bank, it is our duty to ensure that the projects that we finance protect all corners of our communities. Women, men, girls and boys must have the opportunity to benefit from their outcome equally and equitably. To improve the impact of its activities on women and girls, the EIB Group adopted a Strategy on Gender Equality and Women’s Economic Empowerment in 2016. This Strategy and related Action Plan will guide the Group to further contribute to the Sustainable Development Goal (SDGs) to 'achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls' by 2030.

Last year, the EIB supported EUR 23bn investments outside the EU, in projects to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals: creating good jobs and fighting poverty, supporting young people, women and rural populations, preventing disease through access to clean water, supporting green energy and building vital transport links.

The EIB outside the EU 2017 report describes how the Bank is working to deliver results on issues such as the SDGs, gender equality, climate and migration, and the financial and technical contribution we are able to provide.

About the European Development Days (2018 EDD)

Organised by the European Commission, the European Development Days (EDD) bring the development community together each year to share ideas and experiences in ways that inspire new partnerships and innovative solutions to the world’s most pressing challenges. Under the main thread of ‘Women and Girls at the Forefront of Sustainable Development: protect, empower, invest’, the 2018 EDD agenda will be framed by three major themes emerging as key priorities in today’s current context:

  • Ensuring the physical and psychological integrity of Girls and Women,
  • Promoting economic and social rights and empowerment of Girls and Women and
  • Strengthening Girls’ and Women’s voice and participation.

Join the EIB at the EDD

The theme of this twelfth EDD edition mirrors the three pillars of the EIB Group Strategy on Gender Equality and Women’s Economic Empowerment, 'Protect, Impact, Invest'. On its stand - stand 73 in the Global Village - the EU Bank will present some of its supported projects and initiatives aiming at improving women’s lives worldwide. Visitors will notably have the chance to meet the bank’s experts on gender and development, join our lab debates with leading experts and opinion makers and learn what the EIB can contribute to sustainable living for all. They will also have the opportunity to try the innovative solar-powered lanterns produced by one of the EIB project beneficiaries, d.light, which provides affordable solutions for women and men without access to reliable electricity.
