The EIB and the Islamic Development Bank (IsDB) hosted the 2022 Global Gender Summit of the Multilateral Development Banks (MDB) Working Group on Gender (WGG), from 16-19 May 2022 in Cairo, Egypt.

Supported by a group of 11 Multilateral Development Banks, the summit provided a platform for experts, policy makers and development practitioners, to discuss concrete ways to advance gender equality, particularly with regards to employment and the care economy; digitalization ; and climate action, ahead of the UN Climate Change Conference 2022 (COP 27) hosted by the Egyptian Government later this year.

The vast variety of speakers who took the floor during the three-day summit, from the private sector, International Financial Institutions and international organisations such as the International Labour Organization, governments, municipalities, and Non Profit Organizations, enriched a truly global event with their expertise and experience.

This summit provided a unique platform to discuss challenges and solutions to achieve gender equality and boost resilience and climate action, ahead of COP27.
