AWID is excited to be hosting a ‘Guests on the Wire’ session on the occasion of the Commission of the Status of Women’s 58th session.

This e-session will be organized in conjunction with allied organizations and members including: Bhumika Muchhala, TWN and Bridget Burns, WEDO.

Description

The 2015 deadline for the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), commonly known as the Post-2015 development agenda, is at a critical moment for development. The Post 2015 development agenda represents an opportunity for UN member states to articulate a new vision for development, for a sustainable e

arth and for addressing the enormous wealth, resource and power inequalities that exist between countries, between rich and poor, and between women and men. It also provides an opportunity for people’s movements to come together in global solidarity to express people’s aspirations, people’s goals, and demands for a new development agenda that puts women’s rights at the center of development.

This ‘Guests on the Wire’ session will:

  • Shed light on the Post 2015 and SDG process
  • Speak to how parallel processes will intersect in the Post-2015 agenda
  • And discuss the challenges and opportunities for women’s rights organizations around the world to influence this new development agenda
