On the 29th and 30th of October the Regional Review meeting of Bejijng+25 took place in Genève. This meeting examined the progress of implementation of the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action. The challenges and progress of advancing the agenda for gender equality and the empowerment of women were discussed.
Gender Concerns International as a signatory of the Dutch National Action Plan on UNSCR 1325, has made a contribution by sharing the challenges and setbacks they encounter during their work. These observations along with those of other gender and women´s right organisations in the Netherlands were shared by the Dutch delegation during the Regional Review meeting.
Gender Concerns International looks forward to next year when the 25th anniversary of the Beijing Declaration and Platform of Action will be celebrated and will be looking closely if their recommendations are taken into account
