Together with Countdown 2030 Europe partners, DSW will be organising an online roundtable on the side-lines of the ‘Virtual Not without FP Forum’, titled: Beyond 2020 Roundtable: European donor support to SRHR and FP in the coming decade.

When: Feb. 2nd, 11am-12pm European Time/1pm-2pm East African Time.

We are pleased to invite you to a special roundtable discussion on European donor support to sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) and family planning (FP) in the coming decade. The period 2019-2020 was one of contrasts: on the one hand, 2019 broke new ground for overall European support to SRHR – in terms of funding, looking at donor trends by Countdown 2030 Europe and the Donors Delivering for SRHR report; and in terms of new commitments and momentum. On the flip side, the Coronavirus will most likely have a drastic impact on European Official Development Assistance. What are European donors’ perspectives on this, and how are these trends and events experienced by decision-makers in Africa?
