The CPDE Feminist Group invites everyone to join a UN High-Level Political Forum side event it is holding, titled Left behind orphan: Financing women’s rights and gender equality happening 6 July 2022, 7:30-9AM EST.
Co-organised with the Forum of Women’s NGOs of Kyrgyzstan, NETRIGHT Ghana, Coordinadora de la Mujer Bolivia, Commonwealth Medical Trust (Commat) United Kingdom, Gender Centru Moldova, and CSEND Geneva, the event upholds that adequate and effective financing is essential to achieve gender equality and women and girls´ empowerment. Organisers, however, lament that many countries choose to ignore SDG 5.c and its indicator, treating it as a forgotten orphan.
“Much more needs to be done by all development partners: governments, parliaments, national statistical offices, local decision-making bodies, donors and civil society organizations to live up to promises made at the start of the 2030 Agenda,” explained CPDE Feminist Group’s Nurgul Djanaeva.
