Rio+20 Preparatory Regional Conferences in Arab and French Speaking Countries
Preparatory Regional Conferences in Arab and French speaking countries before the UN Conference on Sustainable Development Rio+20
As part of its activities in relation to the UN Conference on Sustainable Development Rio+20, WECF, together with VAM (Voices of African Mothers), is also coordinating the participation of womenís representatives in the regional preparatory conferences in Arab and French speaking countries (Mauritania, Chad, Cameroon, Niger, Algeria, Tunisia, Jordan, Egypt, Morocco).
The women representatives of the latter states are greatly disadvantaged as all the official communication takes place in English.
The objectives of the initiative are to allow civil-society women from Arab and French speaking developing countries:
- to fully participate in the global womenís preparation for Rio+20 to assure that the global women major group benefits from the input and experience
- to bring the womenís policy statement for Rio+20 to the attention of policy makers in their countries, as well as to peers and press.
For further information on womenís priorities for sustainable development for Rio+20, please visit www.womenrio20.org and Women Major Group.
