UN Summit on Eradicating Poverty and Promoting Prosperity in a Changing World

8 days of advocacy and activism for a gender just future within the SDG process. WECF recently attended the UN summit on the Sustainable Development Goals (High Level Political Forum, HLPF) in New York and reports back on their experiences. Ministerial Declaration Four days into the Summit, a few member states broke the silence on the Ministerial Declaration. The issues raised were on foreign occupation and gender equality. What was feared as a result was that we would leave the summit without an outcome document, which in turn would have had the possibility to weaken the HLPF process.

Even with more than 2000 representatives of stakeholders group present in New York city, many women from developing countries and the global south weren’t able to come. This followed the continuous trend of the current US government refusing visa of civil societies’ representatives. The pre-negotiated Ministerial Declaration that was supposed to have been a done deal, saw a little drama at the 11th hour when 4 countries broke silence, US over a line on the WTO, Israel over “foreign occupation”, while Australia and Canada both broke silence on what was felt was an insufficient language on gender equality and private sector. The final Ministerial Declaration adopted was  the same one the HLPF started with, and seemed to reflect only the minimum agreeable points member states could [...]
