Voices from Asia Pacific:
Just and Sustainable Development Goals for Women

This event will explore what a feminist, rights-based approach to development might look like. It will consider possible rights-based, sustainable and just development goals particularly relevant to Asia Pacific rural and indigenous women by assessing the progress and gaps for the last 20 years. Despite rural and indigenous women of Asia Pacific being most affected by unsustainable growth models of development, they are rarely the architects of global development policies. Yet rural and indigenous women have significant knowledge around sustainable practices and their development needs. This panel draws from a series of consultations with rural and indigenous women of Asia Pacific to propose some development indicators that are focused on the sustainable enjoyment of human rights where human rights principles of equality, non-discrimination, participation and representation, transparency and accountability, international cooperation and solidarity determine people’s development.

Co-organised by:
Asian Rural Women’s Coalition (ARWC),
Asia Pacific Forum on Women, Law and Development (APWLD),
Asian Women’s Network on Gender and Development (AWNGAD)
Delegation supported by UN Women

Date & Time: 15 Jun 2012, 13:30 - 15:00
