AGIP’s Generation Equality Commitments


AGIP is proud to work in partnership to achieve our commitment to amplify and support adolescent girls’ leadership in the ongoing Generation Equality process.

The Adolescent Girls Investment Plan (AGIP) is a global, intergenerational coalition working to affect change for adolescent girls by closing the persistent gap between resources, evidence, and commitments for adolescent girls.

Building on the recommendations in the Young Feminist Manifesto, AGIP will amplify and support adolescent girls’ leadership and the community-driven organizations central to their participation in the GEF process and ACs, support the Adolescent Girls Advisory Body and Youth Task Force to ensure that these spaces are girl and adolescent friendly and gender-inclusive, build the capacity of adolescent girls to develop and use evidence and best practice to inform their advocacy and support adolescent girls so they are centered in GEF accountability mechanisms and have meaningful engagement and co-leadership. Where gaps exist in processes, AGIP will create, resource, and advocate for meaningful participation, leadership, and decision making.

This is a collective AGIP commitment from Women Deliver, Plan International, Girls Not Brides, Amplify Girls, GAGE, She Decides, Malala Fund, and ICRW.

The Road to Generation Equality Forum: An Opportunity to Accelerate Progress with Adolescents and Young People

AGIP Joint Publications, Publications, Resources

Over the last 25 years, the world has made tremendous strides in shaping a more gender-equal world. Still, millions of adolescent girls and young women face barriers to realizing their health and rights. At a time when the COVID-19 pandemic has created new setbacks and widened the gulf for girls and women, the Generation Equality Forum (GEF),which began in Mexico City in March and culminates in Paris in June, affords us a unique opportunity to accelerate progress for all.

The upcoming Forum at Paris presents a moment for decision makers to come forward and make bigger, bolder commitments for gender equality. But real progress cannot be achieved without the meaningful engagement and co-leadership of adolescents and young people.
