Starting on Monday 22 June, Wikigender is running a new online discussion on “Mobilising financing for gender equality and women’s rights to deliver on the SDGs in practice” with several lead discussants: Samina Anwar and Zohra Khan, UN Women; Chiara Capraro, Christian Aid; Nerea Craviotto, AWID; and Emily Esplen and Keiko Nowacka, OECD. The discussion will run until Friday 26 June.
The upcoming Third International Conference on Financing for Development (July 2015) represents a historic opportunity to endorse a comprehensive global financing framework for gender equality and women’s empowerment. As the final countdown to the adoption of the post-2015 sustainable development agenda in September 2015 has started, mobilising more and smarter investments for gender equality and closing financing gaps in priority areas for the post-2015 framework – including women’s economic empowerment and family planning – will be critical to deliver on political promises.
In this context, Wikigender is organising an online discussion to bring together multiple stakeholders to share evidence, lessons learned, and discuss practical proposals on how to mobilise new and ambitious investments to operationalise the SDGs commitments on gender equality and women’s rights.
