Objectifs :

DFID, the Department for International Development : leading the British government’s fight against world poverty.-

Actions financées :

DFID’s work forms part of a global promise to - • halve the number of people living in extreme poverty and hunger- • ensure that all children receive primary education- • promote sexual equality and give women a stronger voice- • reduce child death rates- • improve the health of mothers- • combat HIV & AIDS, malaria and other diseases- • make sure the environment is protected- • build a global partnership for those working in development.—In September 2000, DFID published Poverty elimination and the empowerment of women, which set out our strategy for promoting gender equality and the empowerment of women throughout all our activities.-DFID is working closely with governments, civil society organisations and other donors to implement the strategy and recently appointed a Senior Gender and Rights Adviser to ensure that gender issues are made a priority across our work.-In April 2002, DFID published the Gender Manual, which was designed to encourage policy-makers both within the department and within developing countries themselves to put more emphasis on addressing the needs of women. As well as telling them why they should be bringing the issue of gender in to mainstream policies, the manual also contains guidelines, ideas and tools on how to put it in to practice.-DFID is providing support to education programmes in over 30 developing countries, mostly in sub-Saharan Africa and south Asia, helping governments provide education for millions of children who do not have access to basic education. See Education Factsheet for more information.-DFID is the lead donor to the United Nations Development Fund for Women (UNIFEM) which funds the Trust Fund for the Elimination of Violence Against Women and the Women, Peace and Security Programme. Both programmes support the protection and assistance of women affected by armed conflict and their role in conflict prevention and peace-building.-DFID is working with UNICEF as a part of the UN Girls’ Education Initiative (UNGEI) to ensure stronger collaboration and coordination among donors at the international and country level. We are also supporting UNICEF’s Accelerated Girls Education "25 by 2005" strategy. This will help governments to get more girls into school in the 25 countries where the difference between the number of boys and girls in school is widest.-DFID helped to finance and draft the 2003 Education For All Global Monitoring Report on gender and education.-From November 2004, DFID will be co-chairing the UN Girls’ Education Initiative advisory group (UNGEI) with the Swedish International Development Agency (SIDA).
