ESCWA Centre for Women organized a two-day national consultative meeting on 7 and 8 April 2019 in Kuwait, in cooperation with the Supreme Council for Family Affairs, and representatives of the relevant authorities to prepare the national review on the implementation of the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action after 25 years.

During the meeting, the members of the committee discussed with ESCWA's regional adviser their first draft of the national report on the implementation of the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action after 25 years based on the relevant guidance note. The meeting helped to improve the report’s content, agree on needed data and their sources, and set a calendar for submission.

This technical assistance is part of ESCWA's efforts to support Arab States in their preparations for national reviews on the progress made in the implementation of the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action twenty-five years after its adoption, with a view to preparing the unified regional report for the Arab region, to be developed by ESCWA in partnership with the UN-Women and the League of Arab States, and which will be presented during the Commission on the Status of Women at its sixty-fourth session in March 2020.
