    In the context of the ‘Not Without FP Forum’, we are pleased to invite you to a roundtable discussion on European donor support to sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) and family planning (FP) in the coming decade. With inputs from European and African decision-makers and civil society representatives, we will discuss recent trends in donor funding. 


    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 (new data to be launched on January 25th) and the Donors Delivering for SRHR report; and in terms of new commitments and momentum, with the Nairobi ICPD+25 Summit in 2019, and the renewal of the FP2020 partnership this year. On the flip side, the Coronavirus that spread across the world in 2020 will most likely have a drastic impact on European Official Development Assistance (ODA), including for SRHR.


    What are European donors’ perspectives on this, and how are these trends and events experienced by decision-makers in Africa? What is the role for civil society in ensuring data transparency and holding donors accountable for their commitments? And finally, in the context of different pledging platforms - with Nairobi and the new ‘FP2030’ - what is the role of European donors in the coming decade, and how can the FP space be used to advance SRHR more broadly?


    Full agenda and panelists will follow shortly.
