This is a Regional Analysis on the Status of Women 15 Years after the Adoption of the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action (BPfA), compiled by the African Women’s Development and Communication Network (FEMNET), on behalf of the Africa NGO Task Force on Beijing +15 and Regional and Sub- regional Women’s Organizations and Networks.
This report provides a summarized analysis of progress, gaps and challenges identified in implementing the BPfA particularly in the West, Eastern and Southern sub-regions, with emphasis on the period since the last review in 2004 (Beijing +10). It also maps out the progress, gaps and challenges under each of the critical areas of concern, providing country-specific examples and some of the significant contributions that have been made by women’s civil society organizations in Africa. Finally, the report gives actionable recommendations to African governments in order to accelerate the implementation of the BPfA over the next 5 years and translate the many commitments to the women of Africa into concrete actions.
