Event description

UN Women Regional Office for Asia and the Pacific, together with United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific and the Canadian Government, will support the “Strategising Workshop for the 63rd Session of the Commission on the Status of Women and Beijing+25 Review” organized by the Asia Pacific Forum on Women, Law and Development (APWLD). This civil society workshop will precede the “Asia-Pacific Regional Preparatory Meeting for the sixty-third session of the Commission on the Status of Women (CSW63),” with the priority theme “Social protection systems, access to public services and sustainable infrastructure for gender equality and the empowerment of women and girls”, which will be held from 13 to 14 February 2019 (Event details).

This one-and-a-half day strategising workshop will be attended by members of civil society organizations, women’s organizations and advocates, and will aim to achieve the following:

  • Build capacity of women’s rights organisations new to the CSW and the 1995 Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action, to understand and effectively utilise national, regional and international processes to collectively advocate and galvanise support to further advance the rights of women and girls;
  • Contribute to identifying key advocacy priorities from the Asia Pacific region, ahead of the Asia-Pacific Regional Preparatory Meeting for the CSW63 as well as CSW63 itself; and
  • Plan for participation and contribution for each participant’s Beijing+25 country review processes and strategise over civil society consultation processes and advocacy opportunities for key events planned at the national, regional and international levels.
