Geneva NGO FORUM - Beijing+20 UN ECE Regional Review

Monday, November 3, 2014 - 12:00 to Wednesday, November 5, 2014 - 22:15

The NGO Committee on the Status of Women, Geneva, and its partner organizations, will host an NGO
Forum as part of the UNECE* Regional Review of Beijing+20 (Palais des Nations, Geneva - 6-7 Nov. 2014).
This NGO Forum will examine the 12 critical areas of the 1995 Beijing Platform for Action, to review
progress made, remaining gaps and existing challenges. The Forum will also identify emerging women’s
issues brought on by a changing world and seek government accountability for their commitments made to
women’s rights, equality and empowerment initiatives.
The outcome of the NGO Forum will feed into the ECE Regional Review Process and contribute to the
Global Beijing+20 Report, as well as, the post-2015 agenda.
