Gender Equity and Sustainable Development Dialogue in Washington, DC

Event Date: 
January 19, 2012 (All day)

"Gender Equity and Sustainable Development: Prioritizing Actions to Achieve Results"

Join the Böll Foundation and Partners in a multi-stakeholder dialogue to review systems of governance focusing on economics, food and agriculture, and climate that aren't working, success stories that are working and concrete ways to ensure that progress toward achieving gender equitable and sustainable development will be achieved in 2012 and beyond.

Today, prospects for sustainable development remain a serious challenge as our global economy, our natural environment, our social well-being, and our political structures are in crisis. From the economy to climate change to food and agriculture, systems of governance are in disarray. Leaders recognize that gender equity is essential for achieving sustainable development, yet in many instances rhetoric has yet to materialize into action.

Keynote Address: The Honorable Melanne Verveer, Ambassador-at-Large for Global Women's Issues, U.S. Department of State

Location:
Conference Center, 1st Floor
1400 16th St. NW,
Washington, DC
