Gender Justice for Sustainable Development

In the run-up to the opening of the 68th UN General Assembly, FES together with the Women’s Major Group (WMG), UN Women and the Missions of Timor-Leste and Norway, had organized an event to highlight women’s perspectives from around the world on sustainable development themes including gender equality, food sovereignty, decent work, sustainable energy, and climate change. Women’s Major Group speakers presented perspectives from the Global South and shared analyses and key recommendations for the Post 2015 sustainable development agenda. Brief responses were followed by a moderated discussion with all participants.
