CSW62 CONCLUSIONS On March 12th 2018, the 62nd CSW session was opened at the United Nations headquarters in New York City. WECF was represented by Anke Stock, Sascha Gabizon, Hanna Gunnarsson and our partner Agnes Mirembe (ARUWE, Uganda) and Sonia (BaliFokus). Many important conclusions were reached and agreed upon, among which: increased financing and official development assistance in order to leave no rural woman or girl behind, their full and equal participation at all levels of decision-making, and the enforcement of legislations to end discrimination against rural women and girls. To this, we can add the implementation of fiscal policies to promote gender equality and the empowerment of women and girls, building and strengthening access to funding, sustainable energy and other technologies in climate change mitigation, increasing finances for quality, affordable and accessible health care facilities and services for rural women and girls, as well as the strengthening of HIV/ AIDS prevention, [...]

Страна: Гана Работает в: Институте развития Роль в #women2030: тренер тренеров Сайты, связанные с SDGs: SDG 5, SDG 10, SDG 13, SDG 17   Меня зовут Мейбл Агба, и я из Ганы. Я работаю с Институтом развития, где поддерживаю сельских женщин и местные общины в осуществлении инициатив по сохранению лесов. Сейчас я сосредотачиваю свои усилия на расширении прав и возможностей женщин и гендерном равенстве, и на том, как экологические проблемы влияют на женщин. Я знаю, что мы не можем отделять проблемы женщин от экологических проблем. Меня вдохновляет необходимость поддержки местных женщин и совместная работа с ними для того, чтобы найти реальные решения, которые отвечали бы их потребностям. Именно это побудило меня присоединиться к Институту развития. Каждый день в моей работе я вижу, что мы – женщины - сильны, влиятельны, и мы можем изменить систему. Как женщины, мы делаем много: мы заботимся о доме, и мы сохраняем наши природные ресурсы, и все же [...]
