Countdown 2030 Europe provides positive inspiration, evidence and support for governments and policy makers through their technical expertise, strong evidence and arguments on the effectiveness of SRH/FP in achieving wider gender equality and inclusive development outcomes. In addition, the Consortium partners examine the changing ways in which European governments can channel funding for programmes and projects in developing countries. We use the findings as a basis to engage with national governments and the EU on how existing and new opportunities can best be employed to meet SRH/FP commitments.

However it will match this with work to uncover where commitments are not being met, and use this data to promote transparency and hold governments to account. The importance of tracking European donor funding for SRH/FP in the 12 Consortium countries and the EU is a proven means of monitoring progress and an invaluable advocacy tool.
