Over 70 representatives of civil society organizations and youth advocates from across the Arab States region met in Amman, Jordan recently, to conduct a parallel review and discussion on the progress and lessons learned in the implementation of the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action, in the lead up to the Arab States High-Level Conference on the Beijing+25 Review.

Led by CSO networks, the meeting identified and discussed key priority areas for accelerating the achievement of gender equality and women’s empowerment in the region. These priorities include: legal reform, strengthening women’s machineries, eliminating gender-based violence and ensuring human security for Arab women, improving educational and health services provided to women and girls, enhancing women’s leadership, supporting women’s participation in all forms of work including informal and non-paid work, and reinforcing national and regional statistics and data capacities to monitor and report effectively on the progress in implementation of the Beijing Platform.

The two-day meeting concluded with the participation of UN Women Executive Director, Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka, who led an interactive dialogue in which CSOs and youth representatives renewed their commitment to the seven priorities identified.
