The NEPAD Agency takes a holistic approach to gender mainstreaming and women’s empowerment, with a view to integrating these concepts into its programmes and processes. One of its flagship programmes is the NEPAD Spanish Fund for African Women’s Empowerment. The fund is a partnership between the NEPAD Agency and the Spanish Government through the Spanish Agency for International Development and Cooperation (AECID) which has a total endowment of Euro 20 million. The NEPAD Spanish Fund has empowered African women with financial resources and technical expertise to unlock their economic potential, fight poverty and create wealth. Its interventions aim to promote gender equality and women’s empowerment in sub-Saharan Africa.
