Regional EECCA meeting in Batumi on our Women2030 project

WECF organised the regional meeting of the Women2030 project in Batumi, back to back with the 8th Ministerial Environment for Europe Conference Georgia

07.06.2016 |

The EECCA (Eastern Europe, Caucasus and Central Asia) regional meeting of the Women2030 project, the first of four regional meetings for the project, took place in Batumi, Georgia, June 6 and 7, back to back with  the EfE Ministerial Conference “Environment for Europe” in Batumi.

The ECCAA regional meeting brought together gender experts and gender- and environment focussed civil society organisations from Ukraine, the Caucasus and Central Asia and focussed on implementing the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). In particular, the meeting provided an introduction to the Women2030 project, introduction to the 2030 Agenda on Sustainable Development and the role of civil society in the SDGs process, including the challenges and opportunities in the EECCA and EU region. A core component of the meeting lay on gender-responsive implementation of the SDGs, including tools and existing practices. The regional meeting also facilitated exchange between civil society organisations and regional policy-makers as it was being held in parallel with the Ministerial Conference.

The Women2030 global project aims to build capacity of women’s civil society organisations to advance local and regional equitable, inclusive and environmental sustainable development (including the 2030 Agenda and climate change processes) through participation in policy development and monitoring and capacity building.
