Global Partnership for Education, June 27, 2018


Increasing equity, gender equality and inclusion for all is one of GPE’s three goals in GPE 2020, GPE’s strategic plan for 2016-2020, and critical to achieving the vision of SDG 4 for education.

GPE’s Gender Equality Policy and Strategy 2016–2020 provides guidance throughout the period of GPE 2020 and supports governments in developing gender-responsive education sector plans.

To break down the barriers to gender equality, GPE:

  • builds the evidence base
  • monitors and analyzes results
  • funds gender-responsive strategies for girls’ education
  • invests in global public goods through KIX.
