The ESCWA Centre for Women, in partnership with the League of Arab States (LAS), the United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women (UN-Women), and the Arab Women Organization (AWO) is organizing a consultative workshop for civil society organizations in the Arab Region on progress made in the implementation of the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action after 25 years.

This workshop, which will take place on 16 and 17 April 2019 at the United Nations House in Beirut - Lebanon, aims to present and discuss progress achieved in the implementation of the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action throughout the past five years from the perspective of Arab civil society organizations. This will be done by:

  • Highlighting CSOs contribution in implementing the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action in the Arab region and their related achievements;
  • Identifying the most significant barriers and challenges that affected the implementation of the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action, and their implications for the role of CSOs in achieving desired progress;
  • Identifying priorities, future visions, and recommendations that would accelerate the implementation of the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action in the Arab region.
The workshop also aims to discuss on-going preparations of national-level reviews and shadow reports of civil society organizations if any, and to identify follow-up steps and mechanisms at both the national and regional levels to coordinate efforts and recommendations that would accelerate the implementation of Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action in the Arab region.
