Safeguarding our Gains : African women’s collective action in defining the pathway to achieve 2030 Agenda for sustainable development and Africa Development 2063

05/04/2017

150 people are meeting this week in Nariobi, Kenya at the invitation of the African Women’s Development and Communication Network (FEMNET). FEMNET is a pan-African, feminist network composed of more than 600 member organizations and individuals in 43 countries across Africa. This week's 3-day event aims at defining the pathway to achieve 2030 Agenda for sustainable development including SDGs.

The idea behind this workshop is to ensure that the Women’s Rights Organizations and other Civil Society Organisations working on gender equality and women’s empowerment across Africa, effectively engage in the follow-up, review and implementation of the SDGs, to advance the gender equality and women’s empowerment agenda accross the continent. During the workshop, participants also look at best practices and exchanges of information with women's organisations in Europe and how the Agenda 2030 and related SDGs related to women and gender will be implemented.

B&S Europe, in the frame of the JAES – Joint Africa-EU strategy Support Mechanism Project II, is supporting FEMNET in the organisation of this event.
