The Women’s Working Group on Financing for Development, as well as the Addis Coordinationa Group, will hold an official UN side event under the auspices of the Third International Conference on Financing for Development, co-sponsored by the Governments of Uruguay, Government of Iceland, Friedrich Ebert Stiftung (FES), Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights and UN Women.
The event will present the latest analysis of the Addis Ababa Action Agenda from a feminist and women’s rights perspective and highlight key issues that are at stake given the potential of the FfD process to either contribute to achieve economic justice and advance the realization of human rights for all or to further entrench human rights abuses and to exacerbate gender inequality.
The session will also draw on the recommendations from the publication of the Women’s Working Group on Financing for Development – Realizing Women’s Human Rights in Development- which will be launched at the event. Highlights from the Women’s Forum on Financing for Development and the CSO Forum will also be presented.
