How projects from the Inequality Challenge support the fight against inequality

First results of the innovation fund

Three projects of the Inequality Challenge, a fund by the German federal government that supports innovative projects focusing on overcoming inequality and achieving the Leaving No one Behind principle, will present preliminary results in Pecha Kucha storytelling format. Fair Share by Oxfam Brazil developed a tax calculator that simulates fairer scenarios in connection with progressive tax reform. Narrative geographies by CMAP Nigeria maps slums and produces radio dramas to give marginalised communities a voice in urban development. Closing the Gap by GIZ Jordan trains women as mobile money agents to empower more women to gain access to finance. Speakers and participants will engage in a lively discussion about the challenges of implementing small-scale projects that address inequality.
