Representatives from the governments, EU delegations and civil society from the EU candidate countries and a potential candidate will gather for the 15th meeting of the established EIGE’s Regional Coordination Platform for Gender Equality Action in the Western Balkans and Türkiye.

The presentations and discussions will focus on bridging gender equality and the green agenda in the region. EIGE also marks the 10+ years anniversary of cooperation with EU pre-accession countries, thus partners and meeting participants will reflect on the achievements so far.

More than 40 participants are expected to take part in Brussels and online from the region, European Commission, and other international organisations, including UN WOMEN, Regional Cooperation Council and UNFPA.

The meeting is organised under the EU Instrument for Pre-Accession Assistance (IPA) and funded by the Directorate-General for Neighbourhood and Enlargement Negotiations (DG NEAR), European Commission.
