Short Description:

Overall goal

Im Anschluß an die UN Frauenkonferenz 1995 in Peking wurde eine Plattform gegründet, die die Umsetzung der Konferenzergebnisse betreiben sollte. 10 Jahre danach sollen die Resultate evaluiert werden. 2004 gab es eine afrikanische Vorbereitungskonferenz in Addis Abeba. Im Februar 2005 gibt es nun eine Konferenz der Commission on the Status of Women in New York, die weltweit Frauen zur Diskussion über die Erreichung der Ziele von 1995 zusammenführt und den Namen "Beijing+10 Review" trägt.

Zu dieser Konferenz, die von 27.2. bis 11.3. stattfindet, sollen auch 6 Frauen aus den westafrikanischen Partnerländern Kap Verde, Senegal und Burkina Faso reisen können. Durch die Planung verschiedener Aktivitäten sollen die Ergebnisse der Konferenz dann wieder in die strategische Arbeit für Frauen in der Region in den NGOs und im staatlichen Bereich fliessen.
