Multistakeholder cooperation can tackle inequalities through holistic and human-centered approaches. Following the launch of a Call to Action during EDD18 to foster synergies between gender empowerment and culture strategies in and for cooperation for development, this session brings together stakeholders from other fields – education, health, the private sector and territorial development – to exchange views on the Call to Action's recommendations. They will share their insights on the cultural dimension of gender inequalities through broader and transectorial perspectives to follow up on the Call to Action, mainstream its recommendations and foster new policies and projects.
