Description

Nearly 30 women civil society activists with expertise in conflicts, natural disasters, and violence from South Sudan to Afghanistan to Colombia gathered at UN Women during the 59th Session of the Commission on the Status of Women. The purpose of the workshop was for the participants to share their experience of challenges, good practice, and emerging ideas. This was in order to develop practical recommendations on how to advance the fulfilment of commitments to gender equality, women’s empowerment, and women’s rights in humanitarian action to feed into the consultation process for the World Humanitarian Summit.
