“If you want to control the pace of the dance, you better be the one behind the drum.”
Representatives of African women’s rights organizations, trade unions, peace and civil society organizations, indigenous, faith-based and community-based organizations, media and academia from 17 countries working in the spheres of agriculture, environment, finance, governance, health, law, leadership and trade met in Nairobi, Kenya from 6 – 8 May 2015 to reflect on issues of Financing for Development (FfD) and the Post-2015 Agenda. This meeting was organized FEMNET (the African Women’s Development and Communication Network), African Women’s Development Fund (AWDF) and the Post-2015 Women’s Coalition, with additional financial support from the International Women’s Health Coalition (IWHC).
Through the presentations and interactive group discussions, participants shared insights on the two processes as they identified the opportunities and challenges for the realization of women’s rights, gender equality and women’s empowerment at the national, sub-regional and regional levels that feed into these global discussions.
